Health questions are answered by e-mail during normal Health Services operating hours.  Answers to questions submitted during the weekend may take up to 72 hours.  In case of an emergency, you should seek immediate medical attention by contacting 911 or your primary care provider.  The Health Center provider may suggest an alternate source of your answer depending on the nature of the question.
