Biofeedback Training

EmWave (our biofeedback program) is an excellent way to decrease feelings of stress and anxiety. A sensor is connected to your ear lobe to display heart rate, which will be measured as you practice deep breathing while using imagery and games. Benefits of biofeedback include decreased anxiety, better focus and sleep, and feeling more calm, peaceful and positive.

To use EmWave, please make an appointment with the Health and Wellness Center.

Prescription Delivery

A prescription delivery service from Wegmans Pharmacy is available for students. Students must complete the Wegmans Pharmacy Prescription Delivery Form [pdf] and call the pharmacy at (585) 586-7922 to make payment arrangements. Prescriptions can be picked up during regular Health and Wellness Center hours. Same day deliveries can be picked up at the Health and Wellness Center from 4 - 5 p.m. provided the prescription is received by 2 p.m.
