Lafene-Every Man a Wildcat- Every Wildcat a WellCAT

Lafene Health Center is thrilled to partner with the K-State Parents and Family Program to provide information about Lafene that you might not know.  If you haven’t been to Lafene Health Center recently, then you haven’t been to Lafene Health Center!

We are excited about the services that Lafene offers and we want YOU to know about them too! Lafene provides students with high quality health care, focusing on keeping your student healthy and promoting a healthy campus community.  Students have access to coordinated and comprehensive services targeted at building and maintaining overall well-being.

These services are available through Lafene Health Center, including our Health Promotion Department, and Counseling Services.  We believe good health is essential for academic success.  We provide preventive care including immunizations, physicals, well women and well man exams, STI screenings and pre-travel visits. We have a full-service on-site lab as well as a full-service pharmacy that even has a drive-thru.  We also have physical therapy and rehab, sports medicine and injury treatment, and even massage therapy.

Lafene Health Center has physicians who are Board Certified in Family Practice, Pediatrics and Sports Medicine.  We also have a Board Certified Physician Assistant and nurse practitioners who are Board Certified in Dermatology, Family Medicine, Psychiatric and Mental Health, and Women’s Health.  We were honored to be voted #2 in College Health Services in the U.S. in the 2020 Princeton Review.  We are accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).  We believe that Lafene Health Center is the best health care option for K-State students.

Lafene Health Center has kicked off a new series this semester called Relevant Resilience!  The seven-part series started on February 4 and is held every other week at the Staley School of Leadership Studies, Room 123.  Chris Bowman, Lafene Health Center Health Educator, is the professional behind the series and is also one of the presenters.  He is certified as a resilience trainer.  Remaining sessions in the Relevant Resilience! series include What’s Your Mindset (3/3); The Art of Self-Care (3/17); Resiliency Now (3/30); Strengths, Resiliency, and Grit (4/14); and Building Social Capital:  How Involvement Can Help You Succeed (4/28).  More information about the sessions can be found at https://www.k-state.edu/lafene/relevant_resilience/index.html.  Encourage your student to join us at the upcoming sessions.
