To keep Independence Community College as safe as possible, the college has launched a virtual healthcare program for all students, faculty and staff. These visits are safe, secure and confidential.
“The launch of our virtual healthcare program will help students see a doctor or therapist via phone, laptop or other mobile device wherever they are,” said Dr. Vincent Bowhay, Vice President for Student Affairs. “These services are available 24/7, 365 days a year, so all of our campus community can benefit from speaking to a doctor or therapist wherever they are.”
Telehealth services can be used to treat a wide variety of issues. Through the college’s partnership with The Virtual Care Group, all Pirates can speak with a doctor for common issues like allergies, cold and flu symptoms, bronchitis and more. The service also provides access to therapy sessions for issues like depression, eating disorders and grief or loss counseling. Through the new telehealth program, students and staff have unlimited access to medical doctors and up to three free talk therapy sessions per semester. Most of these services are free to ICC students, faculty and staff.
