The Sullivan Center is excited to offer new services here on campus at Clemson University. In 2012, we started offering group sessions of CU4Health services. This year, we are starting a dermatology clinic, travel immunization clinic and expanding wellness across campus with one-on-one counseling sessions to help our clients quit smoking, improve nutrition, and more! Not only do these new services allow Clemson University employees, faculty and staff greater access to the healthcare services they need – they also allow the Sullivan Center to expand collaboration efforts between colleges to enhance student experience at Clemson. Students from areas like nursing, public health sciences and PRTM will continue to gain valuable hands-on experience in our clinical learning environment, as they have for years. With the expansion of our services comes the expansion of learning experiences for students.
Our dermatology clinic will feature services to diagnose and treat minor skin problems, such as mole removal, skin tag removal, and cryotherapy for things such as plantar warts. Remember the ABCD rule of melanoma when inspecting your skin for suspicious moles: asymmetry, border irregularity, color (uneven, brown, black) and diameter (greater than 6 millimeters). If you notice a suspicious mole, make an appointment to see a provider—1 in every 34 Americans will develop melanoma (skin cancer) in their lifetime!

If you will be traveling abroad, or need your adult immunizations updated, our travel immunization clinic can ensure you are up-to-date on all of your shots. We are a Yellow Fever vaccine provider, which is important for travel in Africa and South America. This vaccine is required for entry into some countries, and you will receive an immunization certificate for proof of this vaccine. We also offer standard immunizations like Hepatitis A and B, tetanus and Tdap. Click here to read about each vaccine, and call our front office to consult a provider prior to travel. Remember, some immunizations take time to start protecting you, so you will need to consult a provider 4-6 weeks prior to travel. If you are traveling to an area where you will need some type of prophylactic medication (i.e., a place where you will be exposed to malaria), the Sullivan Center can also take care of that.
Lastly, the Sullivan Center is available to help you improve your health throughout the year. Our long-standing wellness program, CU4Health, is available to employees, faculty and staff on the state insurance program for only $15. This comprehensive health assessment can assist you in gauging your current health status, and the one-on-one counseling session (included in the cost) can help you identify which areas of your life can be improved. If you need more than one counseling session, you can make an appointment to see a health educator about a topic of your choice. Clemson University is going tobacco free, so the Sullivan Center, along with Redfern, is here to help the people on campus quit through the CUQUIT program. The Sullivan Center can help you quit smoking through one-on-one counseling sessions, visits with nurse practitioners, and creating personalized plans for quitting—because everyone is unique! If you need assistance with improving your nutrition, a counselor can meet with you to discuss your diet, as well. Click here to visit the Nutrition 101 section of our website. Call our front office to request an appointment for a counseling session. Please specify what you need assistance with so a health educator can set up a plan for you!
