The Health Education Office is an inclusive resource center that focuses on preventative health and wellness on campus.

We provide services and resources related to sexual and gender identity, sexual health and misconduct, alcohol and drug use and abuse, healthy relationships, and mental health and self-care. Georgia Ringle and the student Health Advisors are free to meet with students regarding these topics. Our staff are available to all students and are equipped to connect students with additional resources. The top priority of this office is the overall wellness of the Davidson student body.

Everyone’s experience with health and wellness topics is different. This office recognizes the unique needs of specific communities on campus and works hard to provide relevant resources for all students. No matter how you identify, you are welcome here.
