Success Through Wellness

Flu Season Reminder

For students:

During this busy flu season the HCC would like to remind all DU students we are open Monday through Friday 8 am to 5 pm (open 9 am on Tuesdays and until 7 pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays) to meet your healthcare needs. After hours you can always speak with a live medical provider regarding any issue by calling 303-871-2205. We know that many students may be impacted by the flu and not feel up to attending classes and that many professors have attendance requirements. The HCC does not provide verification of past/prior illness (excuses). The HCC does provide invoices for visits to the HCC when students are sick. If your healthcare provider recommends you not attend class due to medical reasons (eg. severe contagious illness, serious injury, hospitalization, surgery, concussion) you may be provided documentation to share with your professors. Practicing good self-care with frequent use of hand-sanitizer, getting plenty of rest, getting a free flu shot from the HCC and staying hydrated will help you stay healthy this winter. Should you have any questions please feel free to contact the HCC at 303-871-2205.

For Faculty/Staff:

During this busy flu season the HCC would like to remind all DU faculty and staff we are open Monday through Friday 8 am to 5 pm (open 9 am on Tuesdays and until 7 pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays) to meet the healthcare needs of our students. After hours students can always speak with a live medical provider regarding any issue by calling 303-871-2205. Part of the role of the HCC is to teach appropriate healthcare consumerism and the practice of providing medical excuses seems to send mixed messages to students about the appropriate use of healthcare resources. We know many professors have attendance requirements but the HCC does not provide verification of past/prior illness (excuses). The HCC does provide invoices for visits to the HCC when students are sick. Students are informed if their healthcare provider recommends they not attend class due to serious medical reasons (eg. severe contagious illness, serious injury, hospitalization, surgery, concussion) and they may be provided documentation to share with their professors. All documentation requires a fully executed release of information signed by the student. Should you have any questions please feel free to contact the HCC at 303-871-2205.

As your home for health and wellbeing, the HCC values and is committed to the principle of inclusivity and the promotion/celebration of diversity with respect to all its forms. We are a multi-cultural, multi-disciplinary, and multi-theoretical staff striving to provide culturally competent clinical services, medical treatment, outreach programming, advocacy and training opportunities. We recognize that the current social / political environment may leave certain groups, in particular, our GLBTQI, Muslim identified students, DACA and undocumented, and international students feeling unsafe and unvalued. The HCC is devoted to caring for the emotional wellness, physical wellness, and mental health needs of our students and community, we believe that we have a special obligation to reject oppression in all forms. We seek to provide a protected space for impacted students who may need support during these difficult times. We are committed to providing a safe, welcoming, and affirming environment for all DU students.
