Red Apple Health Center

The Health Center is here to provide health care and education to our students in support of their well-being so they may reach their educational goals, and to serve as a health and medical resource for the campus community. Health care is provided directly by Registered Nurses and or indirectly through educational materials and referrals to community resources.  In promoting wellness, both physical and emotional, students are encouraged to choose positive lifestyles.
