Health and Wellness

We are a diverse team of healthcare professionals who are passionate about providing comprehensive and integrative health and wellness care to help all undergraduate and graduate students enhance and maintain their physical, social and emotional health. We offer free, respectful and confidential primary medical care, mental health care, preventive services and health promotion to help our diverse student population achieve their goals inside and outside the classroom.  Through partnerships with other campus departments, student organizations and the community, we seek to enhance the health of the inclusive Tufts community and advocate for a respectful environment that enables healthy choices and fosters positive health decisions.  Student input and feedback is core to our mission.
