Students who need allergy injections may receive them at Student Health Services by appointment, for a minimal charge.
You may bring your allergy serum directly to Student Health Services along with instruction guidelines from your prescribing physician. Your physician/allergist may also send allergy serum directly to Student Health Services with written instructions on administration protocol. Allergy injections cannot be administered without these protocol instructions from a physician.
Students are required to remain in the clinic for 30 minutes following the injection to assess for possible reaction.
Compliance with your allergy injection schedule is required to enhance the desensitization treatment and to help you maintain optimal health. After all, that is the ultimate goal of allergy treatment!

Nutrition is a very important part of your health and well being. Together we can make a positive impact on your health. Karina Wittmann, a Licensed Registered Dietitian, provides individualized counseling to students on a wide range of topics, including but not limited to the following:
- Weight management
- Eating healthy on campus and meal planning
- Diabetes education and management
- Cholesterol education
- Eating Disorders
- Food allergies and intolerances or other special dietary concerns
- Improving athletic performance
- Disease management and prevention
It is highly recommended that you receive a referral from a healthcare provider to meet with the dietitian. Feel free to ask your provider for a referral. Once a referral has been given, you can schedule an appointment at Student Health Services. Karina works closely with the patient’s referring practitioner to best meet the patient’s nutritional needs. This includes sitting down with the patient one-on-one for a complete nutrition assessment and establish healthy eating recommendations.
Complete a3-day food log and bring it to your first visit. The guide, Tips for a Great Food Log, will help you construct your log. If you complete your food log before your appointment, you can email it to Karina. Be sure to bring any other nutrition-related questions to your appointment.
There is a charge for the services of the dietitian, but this may be billed to your medical insurance.
