SOUTH BEND -

Indiana University South Bend is opening up access to its Health and Wellness Center to the public. The campus is partnering with HealthLinc Inc., a Valparaiso-based health center provider, on what IUSB says is one of the first collaborations between a public university and a federally-qualified health center in the country. The facilities, located in the recently-renamed Vera Z. Dwyer Hall on the St. Joseph County campus, will include primary care, women's health, behavioral health and immunization services.

Interim Chancellor Jann Joseph says the arrangement will have community and educational benefits. "Not only does the partnership with HealthLinc help improve the health of the community," she said, "it provides excellent teaching and learning opportunities to IU South Bend students in Nursing, Radiography, Clinical Laboratory Sciences, and other health professions."

In addition to South Bend and Valparaiso, HealthLinc has locations in Michigan City, Knox, Mishawaka and East Chicago. You can connect to more about the center by clicking here.
