Health & Wellness

  • The ASCTE Health & Wellness team is committed to supporting each ASCTE student to create an environment in which all students can flourish. Faculty members, resident advisors, and licensed professionals work together to ensure that all students feel safe and supported during their time at ASCTE — and that they develop the skills they need to live healthy, balanced lives.
     
    Lead Nurse, Rachel Speakman, is dedicated to taking great care of our students. She oversees the administration of prescription medications, monitors for COVID-19 safety protocols, and is available to students who need consultation regarding various medical concerns.
     
    For those who have chronic conditions such as asthma, diabetes, seizure disorders, severe allergies/anaphylaxis as well as other chronic disorders/conditions, a copy of an emergency action plan from the physician will provide us with important information and ensure a consistent plan of care. If you have one, please send it along with the medications.
     
    School Counselor, Beth Blair, is an important resource and is available to the students for ongoing support. She is available to assist students experiencing emotional, family, relationships, and campus life problems. If serious emotional problems arise, Ms. Blair can provide recommendations for further assessment and intervention.
