The spring 2010 American College Health Association-National College Health Assessment found that “27.4 percent of students reported that stress adversely affected their academic performance in the past 12 months.” Health Services understands the impact of stress on both academic performance and physical health and offers 20- to 30-minute appointments in the StressLess Room, a private, softly-lit room that features a human touch technology massage chair, relaxation DVDs and CDs, stress management literature and more.
Don't feel well?
Health Services can help you make it through the day with free, over-the-counter medications like acetaminophen, ibuprofen, allergy, cough, cold and anti-diarrheal medications.
Ready to quit?
We're a smoke-free campus, so now is as good a time as any to stop. Health Services nurses provide free services for quitting smoking, including nicotene patches, lozenges and gum!
No health insurance?
You have options! We can help you find resources for everything from getting insured, to finding a physician, to free and low-cost care. International students have options, too! Stop by to pick up health information literature or gett referrals.
Are you doing it?
HIV testing should be a part of everyone’s regular health routine along with safer sex practices and clear consent about what you want to do and with whom, every time. Health Services works with local agencies and organizations to offer sexual health services and information. Free literature, condoms and lube are available inside and outside of Health Services. The Anne Arundel County Department of Health provides HIV testing and a nine-strain HPV vaccine weekly during the fall and spring terms, and two to three times per term at AACC at Arundel Mills. HIV testing appointments are preferred but not required.
Everybody's gotta go...
And sometimes you just need a little privacy! Health Services has a private, single-occupant restroom available to anyone on campus. Just stop in Student Union Room 120.
Sometimes accidents happen!
Don't worry. Let our nurses treat your cuts, burns and splinters as well as provide you with self-care information to manage minor injuries and illnesses.
