Health Center

Health services at JCC

Jamestown Community College’s health centers promote health and wellness through nurse directed care and wellness counseling. Our registered nurses and staff are dedicated to helping you stay healthy.

The registered professional nurses in each health center are trained to assess and treat many minor health conditions and illnesses and evaluate the need for emergency care for students, faculty, and staff. Prescriptions for health conditions are NOT available at the health center. Patients who may require more extensive treatment and medical care will be referred to the appropriate facility such as emergency room, urgent care, or their own health care provider.

News Flush - safe eating. How do you know your food is safe? A healthy diet for many can be comprised of many fruits and vegetables, but recently there have been instances of food poisoning and recalls from contaminated produce. Fresh fruits and vegetables can help protect you from heart disease, diabetes and cancers. However, raw fruits and vegetables that are not chosen carefully or cleaned thoroughly can give you worse health issues such as salmonella, e coli, and listeria which can make you very ill and may cause hospitalization. To enjoy foods safely:  All foods, especially fruits and vegetables, should be prepped carefully before eating.  Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water first.  Clean all utensils (especially knives), food preparation surfaces, cutting boards, and countertops just before you begin preparing your items. (Not just a swish with a wet dishcloth! Clean with hot soapy water rinse then dry.)  Wash or scrub fruit and vegetables under running water before you begin eating, cutting, or chopping unless the package specifically says they have been washed.  Even if you do not plan to eat the peel, wash the fruit or vegetable first since dirt and germs on the surface can get inside when you cut.  Cut away all damaged or darkened areas before preparing.  Dry all the produce well before serving or cooking.  Fruits and vegetables need to be stored separately from meat, poultry, or seafood. Never store in the same bag or bin in your refrigerator.  Take care to refrigerate fruits and vegetables you have cut and prepared or cooked within two hours if inside the house and one hour if outside (and temperature is 90 degrees or warmer).
