Student Health Services
Provided by the Family Health Clinic
Graceland University partners with the Family Health Clinic to service the health needs of our students.
The Family Health Clinic is owned and operated by Crystal J. Johnson, ARNP.  The Clinic has a satellite location on Graceland's campus (lower level of Walker Hall, entrance at the northeast corner of the building).  This location is staffed by the Clinic on campus at 1 University Place with a Nurse Practitioner on MWF 8 am to noon and TR 1-5 pm.  Students may also make an appointment to be seen at the Main Clinic Mondays through Thursday.
The health services students receive will not change.  However, it will operate just like any other health clinic in regard to office visit charges, insurance billing, etc.
Peggy Geiger will serve as office manager for both the Family Health Clinic (campus location) and the Intercultural Office as a Graceland employee.
