The Tracy Health Center provides routine medical care and promotes healthy lifestyles for KUA’s student body. Staffed by registered nurses with extensive experience working with adolescents, the Health Center is open Monday through Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. and Sundays as needed. During other hours, there is a nurse on call. Students are encouraged to come to the health center to talk about any and all health issues including physical, emotional, and psychological well-being. Our staff and referral system can address the full spectrum of health concerns. Students requiring professional medical, dental and mental health services beyond the scope of the health center are referred to the nearby Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) and other community health offices. The nursing staff makes all necessary transportation arrangements for off=campus student appointments. One advantage of our contract with DHMC is streamlined appointments – our students enjoy scheduling priority.
