Health Center

Burroughs has a health center/athletic training room located in the Cissel Center that is under the direction of a licensed physician, a registered nurse, and an athletic trainer. These health care professionals are available to handle all injuries and/or sudden illnesses occurring during school hours and during home athletic contests.

As health care professionals, it is our responsibility and goal to provide health care services to all students, faculty, and staff while promoting the connection between health, athletics, and academic achievement.
