Result n/a
Remarks The Student Affairs committee conducted research and found that the Health Center added a list of non-emergency clinics that students may go to. The committee did not feel to conduct anymore research as the what the resolution asked is now implemented.
Whereas The UTA health center serves a great number of the students, yet closes at 5 pm on weekdays and is closed on the weekends; and
Whereas The health center partially accommodates to this issue by providing a list of hospitals and emergency clinics on their website to refer students; and
Whereas This is helpful to students who may have a medical emergency, but not helpful for students who are experiencing a mild to moderate illness that does not need emergency care; and
Whereas There are plenty of non-emergency clinics around UTA that are open weekday evenings, weekends and take student insurance.
Be It Further Resolved That The UTA Health Center add information to their website of different clinics that UTA students could go to for non-emergency needs.
