Foster-Johnson Health Center
The Foster-Johnson Health Center is an ambulatory medical facility. It is the student's advocate for health promotion, disease prevention and early intervention of illness. The health center provides basic health care services to the Grambling State University student body by offering immediate care, medical advice, health counseling, assessment and treatment of maladies, referrals, and wellness education. A validated Grambling State University identification card must be presented when requesting services. The nurse practitioner and nurses are available 7:30 a.m. – 12:00 noon and 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday and 7:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. on Friday. Students are seen by appointments and on a walk-in basis–depending on the case. Illnesses and emergencies that cannot be treated at the health center are referred for private care. The student is responsible for the cost minus any charges the insurance may cover. Referrals are required for all providers. Services will be paid at Out-of-Network rate if referral is not acquired. Students are not required to obtain a referral when the Student Health Center is closed, on vacation, the student is traveling beyond 35 miles from campus, or the student is no longer eligible to access the Student Health Center.
The purpose of Foster-Johnson Health Center is to provide compassionate, accessible and quality health care services to the Grambling State University student body with a respect for confidentiality.
