PLEASE NOTE!!
For those students who have had to remain on campus, unless you are extremely ill and look like you need hospitalization, we will provide a mask for you to wear to protect others and determine the best place for you to stay on campus.   

To reiterate, we do not want you out and about on campus if you are ill with a fever and cough. This includes congregating with others on campus in close quarters - maintain your 6 foot social distancing and continue to practice meticulous hand washing and use of hand sanitizer.

Release of Medical Records Form 

Dear Wabash Students: 

We want to ensure you have continuity of care as you transition from campus to home. If you would like us to send your Student Health Center records to a health care provider at home, so they can pick up where we left off with your care, please fill out this Release of Information form and email it to Nurse Amidon, amidonc@wabash.edu

We now have a HIPAA-compliant health care Zoom account as well, so we can offer Zoom visits for those of you who are not on campus, until you can make other arrangements for your care.

Nurse Amidon is reaching out to students who have regularly-scheduled appointments to offer this, but feel free to email her to request a virtual appointment.

Take good care of yourselves and each other during these challenging times.

--Nurse Amidon, Dr. Douglas, & Dr. Roberts
