DE Health Services

Welcome! Distance Education students are very much a part of our campus community. Although distance education students may never step foot on our campus, we welcome the opportunity to confer and assist with health educational information or referrals.

Contact us! We prefer being contacted by phone at 808-845-9282 (voice/text). Emails to hcchlth@hawaii.edu are also welcome, however replies may take 1-2 business days depending on the nature of the question/concern.

Non-Emergency Information & Referrals

Most of the resource information contained within the Health Office webpages are for situations of a non-emergent nature, unless otherwise indicated. Situations in which a health condition is seriously or rapidly worsening should warrant immediate medical attention by a physician. Call 911 or your designated emergency number for emergency medical care. It is equally important to follow through with instructions and medications/treatments provided by the medical professional who cared for you initially. This may also include follow-up care with another health care provider to ensure satisfactory progress of your condition.

Most information and referrals to health care providers and organizations tend to be on the island of Oʻahu or are nationally known websites that provide health education. We welcome your phone call should you have additional questions or concerns that are not addressed here.
