Chronic Medical Problems

Chronic Medical Problems

Students with diagnosed chronic medical problems often need assistance with ongoing treatment, monitoring of laboratory tests, or assistance with housing, dietary, or academic accommodations. This may include assistance with referrals to specialty care here in Winston-Salem or setting up routine lab tests that can be forwarded to doctors back home.

Schedule a Visit at Student Health

We would like to invite you to visit us at the Student Health Service to discuss the resources available to you on campus and in Winston-Salem. Please call the Health Service at 336.758.5218 to schedule an appointment with one of our clinicians after you have received your class schedule if this would be helpful to you. The Mackie Health Center is located on the south side of the gym on the ground floor (our door faces the Athletic Center).
