Announcements

  • Studying abroad?  CHWS offers the required physical and recommended immunizations.  Login in to the CHWS portal or call the office to make an appointment.  Fee is $55.
  • Health Insurance Questions?  To consult with a broker, at no cost to you, Jeff Johnson has worked with many Puget sound students and families over the years!  He is a good resource for questions and options for insurance coverage applicable while students are in the State of Washington.
  • Initial counseling screenings are offered Monday through Friday from 1-4 p.m. without an appointment. Up to 6 students can be seen during this time on a first come, first serve basis.  This screening may be a one-time session for short-term acute issues, but it is also the process for initiating longer term ongoing counseling with CHWS therapists.
