Health & Wellness Center

 

Message from the Director

Welcome to the Lehigh University Health and Wellness Center, which provides acute and ongoing care to approximately 4,800 undergraduate students and over 2,000 graduate students. Our dedicated, professional staff offers a host of services, including acute care, routine examinations, immunizations, lab services, gynecological examinations and contraceptive counseling.

We also have a wellness resource area with over-the-counter medications, and a relaxation room with massage chairs. No appointment is necessary for these services

Our goals are to help individuals stay healthy in pursuit of academic success, and to foster the public health of the campus community.

Susan C. Kitei, MD

Director, Student Health Services
