Naloxone dispensers available on campus

Have you noticed the red naloxone or Narcan dispensers around campus?  They are next to, or near the AEDs, and there is one located in every campus building, including the Elmira Center and ACP.   Naloxone is a medication that can reverse the effects of an opioid overdose, and it is easy to use.   Do you know how to use naloxone to help someone who may have overdosed on an opioid?  Do you know the signs of an opioid overdose?  Be prepared to save a life.  Watch the video here to learn how, and see the AHA: Using Naloxone Algorithm for a quick reference guide.   Please call the Health Office at 607-962-9257 if you would like in person training.  Campus Locations of Naloxone Dispensers

In the event of a medical emergency always call 911.  The 911 dispatcher will notify Public Safety (607-962-9000) of the emergency. 

Wellness Wednesdays

Stop by the Kelly Lounge on Wednesdays between 11 and 12 and let one of our nurses or student nurses check your blood pressure, and we'll discuss ways you can improve it, if it's high.  We'll also be presenting on different health topics.  Let us know if there's a topic that you think we should cover.  

CPR Awareness Education 

We are now able to offer hands only CPR education to anyone on campus.  Did you know that only 40 percent of Americans who suffer a cardiac arrest outside of the hospital receive bystander CPR prior to the arrival of EMS?  Do you want to learn how to help?  Stop by the Health Office, call or email us to learn more.  AHA CPR-Facts-and-Stats

SUNY CCC Health has a new Wellness Room

Are you anxious or stressed and need a place to relax? The Wellness Room offers a quiet place for students to de-stress and contains a brand new massage chair.   Let us make you a cup of tea while you use the room to unwind.  The Health Office and this room are located on the lower level of the Commons Building in the same hallway as Public Safety.  The room is available on a first come, first served basis, or call us at 607-962-9257 to reserve a spot.  

Telehealth with Laboratory Services is available in the Health Office

If you need to see a doctor the Health Office nurses can arrange a remote visit with an Arnot Health provider.  We will check your vital signs, do an assessment, and share our findings with the medical provider who will see you virtually in our treatment room.  If indicated, and with an order from that provider are able to offer lab services, for example we can send a throat culture, a respiratory panel to check for flu or Covid, or a urinalysis if you have symptoms of a urinary tract infection.   Your insurance will be billed for the medical visit and any labs, but there is never a charge for the care provided to you here by our nurses.
