Students can have prescriptions from Wegmans delivered to campus: prescriptions are delivered Monday-Friday at 3:30 p.m. and can be picked up from Health Services. Students will need to bring their photo ID, phone number, and address in order to pick up prescriptions. If you have any questions about this service, call the local Wegmans Pharmacy at 585-243-9020 or visit www.wegmans.com/pharmacy.
For your convenience, you can schedule a variety of Health Services appointments ONLINE! That's right--do your own scheduling simply by going to our student web portal at myhealth.geneseo.edu. (NOTE: the Health & Counseling web portal is separate from Geneseo's Banner system and completely confidential.) Students can also utilize the portal to send messages to clinical staff and cancel existing appointments.
