Mental health issues affect millions of people. Young people are especially at risk, with half of college students reporting that they have been stressed to a point where they couldn’t function during the past year. Through Half of Us, mtvU and The Jed Foundation aim to raise awareness about mental health issues and connect students to the appropriate resources to get help.

Student Life Feature 1

Center for Health and Wellness

The Dr. J. Michael Harding Center for Health and Wellness (CHW) functions as a health care clinic serving the medical needs of Marietta College students. Our goal is to provide both medical care and education that support a healthy college experience.

The center is staffed with qualified healthcare providers, including a medical doctor, a physician assistant, and a nurse. Our services include general medicine, injury and wound care, physical exams, routine gynecology, allergy shots (when coordinated with the students current provider), travel medicine, and limited lab screenings and vaccinations. All services provided by the CHW on site are covered by student fees. However, students will be responsible for any charges not covered by the student fees (i.e., outside consultations, lab work, X-rays, prescriptions, etc.). While the health services provided on campus are very comprehensive they are not complete. At times students may require outside consultations, hospitalization, or ancillary services. Unless otherwise requested, Marietta Memorial Hospital has agreed to perform emergency services, lab workdiagnostic imaging for Marietta College students. Any other outside consultations required will be done per the student’s preference. We encourage any student with special or chronic health concerns to stop by the clinic so that we may be aware and more able to serve any particular need.

The center is open Monday through Friday, during the academic year. Make an appointment by calling 740-376-4477. Please bring a current health insurance card to EACH appointment. If you do not have health insurance, you may check healthcare.gov for health insurance options. You may also speak with Lisa Scott, Coordinator at the CHW for further assistance, by appointment only.
Students may visit our walk-in clinic during normal office hours. Students are seen in order based on severity of condition.
