Health and Wellness

The Office of Health and Wellness is committed to promoting the health and well-being of the Lyon College community by providing quality healthcare and educational outreach programs.

All services are provided free to students except for vaccinations, which are given at cost. 

The goals of the health and wellness office are

  • to provide professional, clinical nursing care in a convenient, cost-effective, respectful, and confidential setting;
  • to assist students, faculty, and staff in making positive choices in their daily lives;
  • to emphasize disease prevention and individual self-advocacy;
  • to facilitate access to additional medical care as needed; and
  • to collect and confidentially maintain student health records as required by law.

Hours and Location

The Office of Health and Wellness is located on the first floor of Edwards Commons. It is open Monday from 8 a.m.–5 p.m., Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday from 8 a.m.–noon and 1-5 p.m., and Thursday from 8-11 a.m. and 1–5 p.m.

Our Staff

Lyon currently has a team of three ICU nurses - Lauren Pickle, Melonie Koch, and Cassie Mohlke - who will be covering the Office of Health and Wellness. Each nurse has extensive medical training, with one also serving on the WRMC COVID team. The nurses will be available for student needs, helping with Lyon's COVID testing procedures and caring for any quarantined students. Additionally, they will be working closely with the medical staff at the UAMS North Central Clinic for students who need to be seen by a physician.
