Building a foundation for life-long health and well-being.

As young women reach adulthood, preventative healthcare becomes very important. The SHSU Student Health Center's Women's Center emphasizes a conversational approach to preventative and reproductive health care for women of all ages. Care is provided by staff specially trained in women's health care in a nurturing and non-judgmental environment. Conversations and clinical care center around issues of concern to women.
