A key component to student success can be attributed to maintaining a healthy physical state. Overlooking health concerns due to a strong focus on keeping up with academic requirements could result in several negative consequences. With the implementation of the Dallas Clinic Day, TWU Dallas students now have more access to student health services.
The Dallas Clinic Day will occur one Tuesday a month, with its first appearance of the semester taking place this Tuesday, Jan. 23. Student Health Services Associate Director Tanisha Freeman said Dallas Clinic Day “began in response to students’ requests to have comparable health care services on the Dallas campus, as driving to Denton was not always convenient.”
Freeman explained that most clinic traffic is due to the need for immunization compliance on the campus. A physician is currently still being offered at the clinic if that service is requested beforehand. According to Dallas News, there have been 38 deaths attributed to the flu within Dallas County since Oct. 1. The clinic is prepared to provide flu treatment to many students at tomorrow’s clinic due to the increase in the epidemic this semester.
