Off-Campus Health Services

Sometimes a visit to M.S. Shook Student Health Service is not enough. In an emergency have your student call 911 or go directly to the emergency room. If your student is on campus and needs help, the Appalachian Police Department can be contacted at (828)262-8000. Below you will find health resources for your student's use in the Boone community.
