The Health and Wellness Center is located next to Memorial Hall, and is staffed with nurses, physicians, and wellness counselors. The goal of the Health and Wellness Center is to enhance the student's educational experience at Farmingdale State and to enable completion of his/her respective degree program through awareness and prevention, visual aids, and wellness counseling. This wellness-focused facility incorporates seven components of wellness, which are physical, emotional, social/multicultural, spiritual, occupational, intellectual, and environmental.
In one setting, two worlds of medicine work in a complementary manner to best address the "whole person" and his or her overall wellness. Acupuncture, chiropractic, massage therapy, yoga/meditation, and reiki are available in addition to traditional medical services. A relaxation/aroma therapy room is also available to enable students to escape from their busy schedules, to relax, and to help with stress management. Nurses are available for immediate assessment and a medical staff including physicians and a nurse practitioner. A women's health clinic is held weekly. Laboratory testing is available on site, and many medications are available if needed.
Total wellness of the student is our goal. Reaching the appropriate balance of the seven components of wellness through traditional and alternative medicine will best enable students to achieve their personal and educational goals. This will also better prepare them for the transition from college life into the working world.
The Health and Wellness Center staff will treat any personal health information with the strictest confidentiality, and will not be released to anyone without your knowledge and written authorization. There are legal exceptions which apply: if a student is an immediate danger to his/her self or others; if there is suspicion of elder or child abuse, neglect, or maltreatment of the student. Such exceptions are extremely rare.
