Students!  Check out the exciting new Student Health 101 for advice on how to get and stay healthy!

The Health Center, which is located on Moore Street between 16th and 17th (across from the Stone Church) is for the care and treatment of routine illnesses and minor injuries.  Appointments are strongly encouraged, but walk-ins will be seen as soon as schedule permits.  Our mailing address is:  Juniata College Health Center, 1700 Moore Street, Huntingdon, PA  16652. 

If the Health Center is closed, and you are seriously injured or experiencing a serious health issue, call 911 and/or go to the Emergency Room at J.C. Blair Memorial Hospital.  If you are not sure what to do after hours, you may call the Altoona Family Physicians after-hours EMERGENCY line at 814-889-6399.  A paging operator will answer and ask for your name and call back number.  Identify yourself as a Juniata College student.  The doctor on call will be able to give you medical advice or help you decide if you need to go to the Convenient Care Center, Emergency Room, or if your problem can wait until the Health Center is open again.
