University Health Center to celebrate 100th anniversary with kickoff event

The University of Georgia Health Center will celebrate 100 years of service this month with a kickoff event Aug. 18.

Any member of the UGA community served that day by one of the clinics will receive a dogbone-themed treat and be entered into a raffle to win one of three prizes: a $100 gift certificate to the UGA Shade Shack/UHC Vision Clinic, a $100 gift certificate to the Physical/Massage Therapy Clinic or a gift basket of Athens community offerings.

Additionally, the UGA Shade Shack/UHC Vision Clinic will host a sunglass sidewalk sale in the atrium, and guests are invited to stop by the UHC Dental Clinic to receive a free toothbrush and toothpaste (no appointment necessary).

In 1917, the Crawford W. Long Infirmary opened with one doctor and one patient room. Over the decades, the Health Center has grown to accommodate the student UGA population. The Health Center now is a 111,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility that hosts 13 clinics with a robust health and wellness mission.
