New Telehealth Service for Students – Starts Today
Posted: March 28, 2022
Seattle University launched TimelyCare, the only student-first telehealth provider that offers a complete care solution, on March 28. All Seattle University students now have access to this new health and wellness resource. This important step forward in Seattle University’s commitment to student health and wellness aligns with the initiatives of Reigniting Our Strategic Directions Goal 3: Enhance the Student Experience. Integrating TimelyCare into existing services improves access and expands care for students. The working group charged with addressing student health and wellness was integral to bringing TimelyMD to our students. Co-chairs Kim Caluza and James Willette, along with other university leaders, facilitated the work of identifying the immediate need for changes in support of student health and wellness.
