UHS helps heal
T . :. .

Michigan's cold winters, students'
inevitably imbalanced diets and the
punishing hours they keep combine to
orm a perfect recipe for illness.
Whether students combat an occa-
sional bout of the sniffles or are glued
'to the sofa with a doozy of a flu, many
miss the chicken soup and sympathy
that helped heal them at home.
However, not far from residence halls
and campus-area apartments stands the
University Health Service. Located at
207 Fletcher St., UHS is a source of
professional-quality health care and a
valuable resource for answering med-
ical questions and concerns.
UHS services are available to all
enrolled students and staff. Cost-con-
scious students can be reassured by the
fact that most services are covered by the
health service fee included in students'
tuition each semester. UHS does not
require students to carry private health
insurance, though it helps if students
need certain immunizations, pharmaceu-
ticals, glasses or contacts, or orthopedic
devices, for which UHS charges.
New-student programs frequently
boast UHS's staff of medical doctors
and specialty clinics.
"UHS is one of the most comprehen-
sive health-care services in the Big
Ten," said Janet Zielasko, associate
director of UHS. "We are one of the
few schools that offer specialty clinics

If students are looking for exercise,
there are more options than running to
class after oversleeping.
The Central Campus Recreation
Building provides University students
with plenty of fun ways to get in shape
and stay fit - and its convenient loca-
tion on Central Campus makes student
fitness extremely accessible.
With many offerings of a health club,
the CCRB provides more than just iron
pumping and competitive one-on-one
basketball. Tennis, racquetball, run-
ning, biking, stair climbing and swim-
ming also await students who are will-
ing to dedicate a few minutes to physi-
With the swipe of an M-Card,
University students can use the CCRB
as often as they like. CCRB employee
Russell Walker says the price of using
the facility is covered by University
tuition, so all students should "take
advantage of the opportunity."
"As long as the individual is regis-
tered for classes," Walker said, "an M-
Card is all you need to get into the facil-
ity." He added that unregistered guests
and relatives of students can use the
CCRB if they are accompanied by a
University-affiliated individual and
willing to pay a $5 fee.
"Working out is a great stress reliev-
er," said Erica Dunbar, an LSA senior.
Dunbar added that she uses the CCRB
during final exams as a way to dull the
Students who frequently use the
CCRB said competitiveness was not
at no charge to students."
UHS houses a laboratory that offers
services like free, confidential testing
for HIV and other sexually transmitted
The UHS pharmacy offers a full selec-
tion of common prescription medica-
tions, as well as a vast array of discount-
ed, over-the-counter, name-bmnd phar-
maceuticals. It also offers a number of
contraceptives and safe-sex products at a
lower cost than in most drug stores.
As part of maintaining good health
and awareness, students can take advan-
tage of UHS's less-publicized services.
"We routinely offer programs that deal
with subjects like alcohol and drugs,
safer sex and sexuality, body image and
eating disorders, and stress and time
management," said Zielasko. Zielasko
endorsed the programs as "fun, interest-
ing and non-preachy. They offer the
opportunity for students to look at their
own values and opinions on those topic
areas, for themselves or for a friend."
In addition, the health promotions
office is a good start for students with
health questions - its staff is knowl-
edgeable and helpful, and if they cannot
provide answers on the spot, they know
where to direct students.
When the sniffles strike, or when stu-
dents wish for out-of-classroom informa-
tion about their health and how to main-
tain it, they can rest assured that compe-
tent hands and minds are close by.

"It is a semi-competitive atmosphere;"
said LSA junior Brittani Chin. "There
always seems tobe someone there who is
bigger than you, but there is also some-
one who is smaller than you." Chin
added that it motivated her to see "all the
students out there working hard during
classes to stay in shape"
The CCRB is open until 10 p.m.
every night during fall and winter
terms, allowing students ample time to
take advantage of the facilities and still
have time for homework.
School of Public Health student
Mark Saks said the "hours are really
great" at the CCRB and he is able to
come "nearly everyday" to work out.
Saks added that he is definitely satis-
fied with the variety of offered activi-
ties, but pointed out that sometimes the
number of students interested in using
the facilities makes it hard for the
CCRB to accommodate everyone.
"It is something suited to the student
- something aimed at personal fulfill-
ment." Depp pointed out that, with the
snack machine and variety of offered
activities, the CCRB is an excellent fit-
ness center. "It is the best facility ...
that the campus offers."
LSA senior Grey Hobbins offered his
overall opinion on the recreational
"The CCRB is certainly the Cadillac
of sports facilities," he said.
Make sure and take it for a test drive.
