Student Health teams up with Appalachian Food Resource Hub

Student Health will be teaming up with Jennifer Maxwell and the Appalachian Food Resource Hub. What is the Food Resource Hub you may ask? The Resource Food Hub is a place where students can go if they are in need of food, warm clothing, toiletry items, and even school supplies. They are located in East Hall and students would need to make an appointment before going. But EVEN better yet, we will be keeping a few food bags here at Student Health for the immediate student need. The food bags will be kept in Radiology when you need them.

Coronavirus Information

Appalachian State University’s emergency response team routinely monitors situations that could affect campus. Student Health Service physicians and staff are in regular contact with the UNC System, and local and state public health officials, following recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and screening ill students for risk factors. We remain vigilant and will continue to work closely with public health officials should we encounter any suspect illnesses.

If a student has traveled internationally or been around someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 AND has a cough, shortness of breath, or fever, they should call 828-262-3100 and ask to speak with a nurse – before coming to the clinic in person – so we can maximize treatment effectiveness while reducing the potential risk of exposing others.
