to Student Health Services
Welcome Back to Fall 2014, CCSF!
Our team of nurse practitioners, psychotherapists, and paraprofessional health staff are here to provide high-quality preventive and basic episodic care, women's health services and psychotherapy. This fall, we look foward to serving students and promoting health awareness and education, as we continue to empower students to develop skills to achieve and manage physical and mental wellness.

Get Tested for Hepatitis B
Hepatitis B is a disease caused by infection with the hepatitis B virus (HBV). Infection with HBV can lead to cirrhosis of the liver, liver failure, and liver cancer. 80% of liver cancer worldwide is caused by HBV infection. HBV testing and vaccination are free at the health center for adult students who:
- were born in Asia, Africa, and other regions with moderate or high HBV endemicity, or
- are unvaccinated and whose parents are from regions with high HBV endemicity.
