Alcorn’s Health and Disability Services celebrate grand opening

Alcorn State University’s Health and Disability Services have officially made Rowan Hall their new home.

Formerly know as the Infirmary, Alcorn’s Health and Disability Services held a ribbon cutting ceremony in front of Rowan Hall Tuesday, April 28. About 50 students, faculty and staff gathered to witness the grand opening.

Alcorn’s Health and Disability Services provide urgent care treatments for non-life threatening medical conditions, minor illnesses, and injuries. They are able to provide screenings and testing that are offered by local healthcare facilities, reducing the need of referring students to off-campus sites. Academic and residential accommodations for students with documented disabilities are also provided. Appointments are not required to receive services.

Director of Health and Disability Services and Registered Nurse Dorothy J. Davis expressed how eager she and her staff are to provide upgraded services to those at Alcorn.

“We are really excited about the new building and services that we are able to provide for the Alcorn community,” said Davis.
