JUNE 2, 2020
Hello Jumbos,
Amid the ongoing concerns about the health and safety our community both due to racial injustice and the COVID-19 pandemic, this week we're introducing you to four different departments in Health and Wellness at Tufts: Health ServiceCounseling and Mental Health, the Center for Awareness, Resources and Education, and Health Promotion.
As a reminder, we are closely monitoring the ongoing situation regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and its impact on the fall semester as well as Undergraduate Orientation and Pre-Orientation Programs. Our priority is the health and safety of our community. As soon as decisions are made, they will be communicated to students and families so everyone can plan accordingly.

Health Service

Located on the Medford/Somerville campus across from Fletcher Field, Health Service is your place for primary health care. SMFA students are also able to receive primary care through Atrius Health at Kenmore-Harvard Vanguard downtown. All students have access to services after hours in an emergency.
While we anticipate care being somewhat different in the fall due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and walk-in appointments being suspended, all primary care visits are covered by your University Health Fee!
Students can make an appointment by calling 617-627-3350. (Put this number in your phone!) 
We provide a range of services and supports. Here are just a few:
