It is our mission to make every effort to have a positive impact on the health care experiences of the Fredonia student while creating a culture in which they can make informed and responsible decisions regarding their personal health and wellness.  Services available include health promotion and disease prevention as well as diagnosis and treatment of acute illness and injury with education for healthy lifestyles and disease prevention, in a caring, supportive and confidential environment.
