The mission of the Student Health Services is to provide the highest quality episodic patient care, to support and enhance education and increase retention by modifying or removing health-related barriers to learning and by promoting optimal wellness. Health is viewed as more than the absence of illness; it is a positive state of full functioning in relation to one’s capacities. The SHS subscribes to the University’s Mission to focus on individual attention for student success, commitment to diversity and responsiveness to the evolving needs of the broader community.
Dear Members of the Edinboro University Community,
As we follow the news about Ebola cases in Texas and West Africa, it’s important to note that there is no indication the virus is present in our community. We should always exercise reasonable caution and take the basic steps such as thorough hand-washing that are recommended to prevent any disease. The possibility that Ebola would affect us directly is remote. Of course, our University community must remain vigilant in being prepared for any outbreak of contagious disease, and we can all rely on the professional staff of Ghering Health Center to lead us in this endeavor. But there is no cause for alarm regarding a potential Ebola outbreak on campus or in this region.
I encourage you to educate yourself about Ebola and read or watch the news to keep up with the latest developments. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guide What You Need to Know about Ebola is an excellent source of information about how the disease is spread and how to protect yourself. University officials are in close communication with the CDC and the Erie County Health Department on this issue and will inform the campus community of any change in guidelines or level of concern.
As the CDC’s guide stresses, the risk of Ebola spreading in the United States is very low. In light of this, I urge my fellow members of the Edinboro community to approach the issue calmly and discuss it in a manner that is informed and respectful of the people in West Africa and Texas who have lost loved ones. Our thoughts are with them.
University students, faculty and staff who have questions about Ebola are encouraged to call Ghering Health and Wellness Center at (814) 732-2743 for answers.
