Chronic Health Concerns
When you have a chronic medical disease, it is important to be connected to medical care. Having regular follow-ups with a health provider can keep you healthy and in classes or other activities during this important part of your life!
Chronic medical disease is a condition lasting longer than 3 months. Examples can include diabetes, asthma, or epilepsy.
If you are new to Mason or have not been to Student Health Services before, call to schedule a “new patient consultation” appointment to meet with a healthcare provider so we can get to know you!
New Symptoms or Ongoing Health Concerns
If you are experiencing new symptoms or have symptoms that are occurring regularly, schedule an appointment to talk with a healthcare provider. You can have your concerns addressed and the provider can discuss a plan of care with you.
Understanding more about your health, and doing your part to take care of it, can help you better manage health challenges.
