Coping with Recent Violence in the News
Recent reports of gun violence across our country leave many struggling to cope with feelings of helplessness and grief, and experts tell us there are steps we can take to get through the painful feelings. Dr. Jill Gover, our Behavioral Health manager, urges everyone to acknowledge how they feel, and offers helpful insight and practical steps that can help everyone.

Mobile STI Testing with Care Begins
To increase health equity, we are bringing services to patients who face barriers with traditional healthcare settings, including for STI testing and treatment. After almost two years of planning and help from a grant from Direct Relief and Pfizer last winter, our Mobile STI unit launched testing off-campus for the first time last week.
In just one day, we were able to see 12 patients for vital testing and treatment, including linkage to ongoing medical care. You can read more here.
