Medical Issues at the Conference

Hopefully no one will need to know this information, but after an unfortunate allergic reaction at a conference I attended a couple of years ago I wanted to be sure that everyone knew the basic medical information.

The campus does not have a campus health care facility or campus nurse, but direct us instead to 2 nearby locations, an urgent care and a hospital emergency room. As always if it’s truly an emergency dial 9-1-1, but for less pressing medical issues here is the information.

Head south from the campus until you hit Highway 14 and then head east (left if you are coming from the campus). Both locations are on 22nd Ave which is a major road that intersects with 14 near the east side of town. You’ll turn south (right if you’re coming from the campus onto 22nd Ave.  22nd is south and east of the campus.
