Health Services strives to promote, maintain and restore the optimum level of health to prevent illness and alleviate disability so students can pursue their studies at Lake Forest College to the best of their abilities.
All full-time students – new, transfer, resident, and commuter – are required to complete a Health History Report and to include an immunization record. These forms must be returned to Health Services by January 12, 2015. If forms are not postmarked by January 12, students will be subject to a late fee of $100. Students not in compliance with the immunization requirements during their first term of attendance are restricted from registering for subsequent terms until compliance is obtained.
Emotional and physical needs of the students are met in a way that is both corrective and educational. Persons significant to the student, as well as cultural and economic factors, are recognized as affecting healthcare needs. Whenever possible, teaching-learning principles are used to assist the student in providing the highest level of self-care.
Health Services are provided to all full-time and part-time students. To obtain a full list of services please click here.
As you know, there is a great deal of speculation, rumor and anxiety regarding the Ebola virus. The College is monitoring the situation closely and we are following recommendations from leading health experts at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Illinois Department of Health and NorthShore University HealthSystem. And while the recent Ebola outbreak has been serious, predominately in the countries of Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone, the risk of acquiring the disease is considered very low, according to the CDC.
