Counseling Center is partnering with Prevea Health; new name will be The UW-Green Bay Wellness Center
The University has partnered with Prevea Health to provide health and wellness support to UW-Green Bay students. Beginning July 1, 2020, the Counseling and Health Center will be renamed The UW-Green Bay Wellness Center and will remain in Student Services (SS1400) on the Green Bay Campus. The same counseling staff and services students have come to know and trust will remain within The UW-Green Bay Wellness Center.
During the academic year, there will be extended hours of care: open through 5:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays and 8 a.m. to noon on Saturdays. After July 1, 2020, The Wellness Center will be closed due to COVID-19 for the safety of our staff and students. On-campus medical services will resume on August 17, 2020. In addition, Prevea Health will also provide medical care to students in the Marinette, Manitowoc and Sheboygan communities.
- Students will continue to receive lab services and prescriptions at reduced costs;
