University of Dubuque students needing health services now have a one-stop-shop on campus for brain health and primary care needs.
The new Smeltzer-Kelly Student Health Center featuring three brain health rooms, two medical exam rooms, a procedure room, lab and waiting area is now open.
“It just makes it so much easier for them to access care, both medical and brain health, rather than having to try to find their way to a clinic,” said Regina Butteris, health center medical director.
At UD’s health center, students can access brain health services from a full-time provider and a married couple job-sharing another full-time position, Butteris said. “It looks fabulous,” Butteris said. “It’s beautiful, definitely well equipped. I think we’ll be able to serve students very well here.”
Physicians and physician assistants at the clinic can treat illnesses, assist with maintenance of chronic conditions, conduct wellness physicals and run basic tests for illnesses such as strep throat and the flu, among other services.
