Health Office

The DCC Health Office will continue to work with the County Department of Behavioral and Community Health on all health-related issues. Watch video about monkeypox here.

Staffed by a registered nurse, the Health Office provides basic first aid, health counseling and education, and referrals to appropriate agencies and resources. Medical emergencies are referred to Campus Safety and Security (ext. 8070).

The Health Office works closely with Campus Safety and Security and the local ambulance for emergency transport.

In requesting medical assistance, the College merely acts as an agent for the injured party. All medical costs are the responsibility of the injured party.

In accordance with the Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (Buckley Amendment), medical information will not be released without written consent of the individual party.
