  HEALTH SERVICES @ LCC


 

 

The facilities in Health Services are available to all students. A registered nurse is on duty from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. Monday to Friday.
Services available include information and counselling on general health, nutrition and weight management, smoking cessation, alcohol and drug education, and sexual health including prevention of sexually transmitted diseases, birth control and pregnancy. Health Services staff can also provide students with emergency and first aid assistance. Students with specific conditions such as epilepsy, diabetes and asthma are encouraged to inform the staff, so that they may assist them more effectively if a problem arises.

Medical doctors hold regular office hours, two hours per day, Monday to Friday. Walk-in appointments are available, however, priority will be given to students with appointments. Check with Health Services staff for specific hours.

It is the student’s responsibility to have medical health insurance coverage for medical expenses. Out-of-province students continue to be covered on their own provincial health insurance. Landed immigrants living in Alberta are considered Alberta residents and must apply for Alberta Health Care within 30 days of their arrival in the province. International students living in alberta for one year or more will also qualify for Alberta Health Care coverage. If a student’s Visa is for less than one year, they are required to purchase private health care coverage prior to coming or on arrival in Canada. Applications for Alberta Health Care and private insurance are available from LCC Health Services.

For more information, call (403) 320 3289.
