The Health Center hopes to offer over-the-counter female birth control by the end of the 2016 calendar year.
As of Dec. 17, 7,869 residents of Covered California’s Central Coast region had enrolled in the program.
So far this year, the Health Center has seen approximately 100 cases. But like Cal Poly’s chief doctor predicts this is only the beginning.
Other students or university are currently not believed to be at great risk, Dr. David Harris said.
If someone needs help, call 911. Don’t worry about repercussions. That’s the message Cal Poly is sending to students.
More students means more germs.
To meet the growing demand of a rising student population, the Health Center extended its hours as part of a new pilot program. However, those aren’t the only changes the Health Center could be facing.
