The mission of the Wellness Center is to maintain optimum physical and emotional health of the ERAU student body through the provision of quality, accessible, comprehensive, and cost-effective health care. The Wellness Center also promotes healthy behavior and lifestyle choices through ongoing educational outreach and programming.
Note: The Wellness Center does not provide notes for missed classes, except in situations of hospitalization. Contact must be made with professors before the missed class.
The Wellness Center does not operate a clinical medical laboratory. However, blood and other specimens are collected here with medical orders. Specimens are routinely sent to LabCorp for analysis.
It is the student's responsibility to know if their insurance requires a specific lab provider and what lab tests will be covered under their insurance policy. Students are responsible for any unpaid laboratory bills. Each student must have a good understanding of their insurance policy coverage to prevent unnecessary changes.
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University recognizes the need to ensure an educational and work environment that is reasonably free from various health hazards. It is well established that the use of tobacco products is attributable to certain forms of health problems. In keeping with our core value of making our environment safer for everyone, the university enforces a tobacco-free policy for all of our campus locations. The only exception is the designated smoking area on the Prescott campus.
The Wellness Center offers tobacco cessation classes, individual counseling, medication management, and help with the Arizona Smokers Hotline, AshLine.
The Wellness Center offers CPR/First Aid classes monthly free of charge to students, staff, and faculty. When these classes are concluded, the participant will receive CPR/AED/First Aid Certification through the American Heart Association.
Prospective Flight and Air Traffic Control students should be aware that certain sensory impairments, medical, neurobiological, and psychological conditions, and prescription medications might delay or preclude FAA medical certification. Students should discuss these issues with an aviation medical examiner to ensure they are eligible to participate in instruction.
Students must go to https://medxpress.faa.gov/medxpress/ for paperwork before their appointment with an FAA examiner.
