TriHealth responds to criticisms

On Aug. 29, the Newswire published an opinion piece entitled “The sad state of sexual health on our campus.” Below is a response from Danielle Reynolds, a Clinical Supervisor with TriHealth.

Xavier University Health & Wellness Center sincerely appreciates the student interest around sexual health awareness on campus. For the past several months, we have been working to launch a Reproductive Health Campaign to help inform Xavier students about free testing available to them through the Affordable Care Act and their insurance companies. Every member of our medical team has participated in this initiative because each individual cares deeply for our students and wants to support them with their healthcare needs. We encourage every student to come by the Health & Wellness Center and meet our team.

Contraceptives have been and continue to be prescribed at the health center. As a primary care office, we do not dispense birth control on-site. We refer complex cases to a gynecologist for the safety and welfare of the patient. Both are standard procedure at every primary care practice. Eventually, we hope to bring the specialty of gynecology into the HUB when it is completed.
Our goal is to make every patient at the Xavier University Health & Wellness Center feel welcome. It is never our intent for any patient to feel shame over a healthcare need. We are here to serve our students and work with them to insure they have access to what they need to live healthy lives now and into the future.
