Announcements

Free Nicotine Replacement Therapy Available to UWRF students through Student Health Services as part of an American Lung Association Grant: Free nicotine replacement therapy (gum, patches, lozenges) are available for UWRF students through Student Health Services as part of an American Lung Association grant (as supplies last).  Students can access the free nicotine replacement therapy supplies as part of the Student Health Services agreements with Vibrant Health Family Clinic in River Falls (715-425-6701) and Pierce County Reproductive Health Services (715-425-8003).  Students should call either location to make an appointment to see a health care provider to discuss options for tobacco cessation. 

Measles:  While we currently have no cases on campus, we are monitoring the situation, and are working with and following recommended guidelines from local, state, and federal health authorities.  The best way to prevent the spread of measles is through proper vaccination.  The recommended measles vaccine schedule (Measles, Mumps, Rubella or MMR) is 2 doses after the 1st birthday and at least 28 days apart (if born after 1956).  Most persons born in 1956 or before have had the disease and so are protected.  If persons have been vaccinated according to the recommended schedule, no further vaccination is recommended at the present.  Most persons attending K-12 school in Wisconsin or Minnesota have likely been adequately vaccinated against measles.  For more information about how to locate immunization records for persons from Wisconsin or Minnesota, go to http://www.uwrf.edu/StudentHealthAndCounseling/StudentHealthServices/Immunizations.cfm.  MMR vaccines are covered for current UWRF students at Vibrant Health Family Clinic in River Falls (715-425-6701).
