At Jefferson College of Health Sciences, we want to provide our students with resources that will help them succeed in the classroom as they prepare for their careers beyond our walls. Our Student Affairs Department works closely with students every day to ensure they have the support they need to maintain their mental and physical health. 

With that in mind, JCHS and Carilion Clinic are proud to announce the newest resource to help our students maintain their health: the Adolescent and Student Health Services Clinic. On Feb. 21, 2012, we celebrated the opening of the new clinic at 902 S. Jefferson Street in Roanoke—right next door to our campus at Carilion Roanoke Community Hospital.  

For more information about this new resource, call 1-800-422-8482 or visitwww.facebook.com/carilionadolescenthealth.
