What’s Happening in Health Services

Meet Sigmund Foster, the Fish!

Health and Counseling Support Services has a new fish named Sigmund Foster! Sigmund is midnight blue beta fish and he likes to eat, frolic through his small cave, and enjoys meeting North Park students. Sigmund Foster will be summering at our Office Manager’s home while Health and Counseling Support Services is closed, but will be back in the waiting room when Health and Counseling Support Services reopens on August 13th.

In effort to support student learning as well as students’ physical and psychological needs while Health and Counseling Support Services is closed over summer break, we ask students to refer to the following information:

  • Please make sure you take care of any needed immunizations and email proof of your immunizations to healthservices@northpark.edu or drop the documents off at Student Engagement in the Johnson Center.
  • You can access Swedish Covenant Hospital, Swedish Covenant Medical Group (SCMG), Swedish Covenant Immediate Care (SCIC) or other local immediate care centers for your campus health care needs over the summer. North Park University will pay for one office visit through Swedish Covenant Medical Group (SCMG) or Swedish Covenant Immediate Care (SCIC) once per academic year. Students who have not used their free visit to SCMG or SCIC during the fall or spring semesters in 2017-2018 can still use their free visit in the summer of 2018. Please tell the staff at SCMG or SCIC that you are a North Park student and bring your North Park ID. For further information, go to northpark.edu/healthservicesFAQ.
