MEMPHIS, Tenn. — LeMoyne-Owen College students now have access to better health resources, with a nurse practitioner on campus.

The college’s partnership with Methodist Le Bonheur Hospital began during the pandemic. Methodist nurses treat students at the Health and Wellness Center on campus.

Monday, college and hospital leaders announced the addition of a nurse practitioner on staff, which means students can get treatment and prescriptions right across from their dorms.

President Bennett-Fairs said the center treats all students, whether they have health insurance or not.
