ADRIAN — Adrian College’s Student Medical Clinic and its staff were honored this spring with an award from the state of Michigan.
The state’s award recognized the medical clinic, housed on the campus of Adrian College inside the Medical Clinic building, for its staff’s “exemplary work ethic, steadfast commitment and dedication to serve the Adrian College community,” a news release from Adrian College said.
The Medical Clinic building is located between Arrington Ice Arena and Docking Stadium.
As part of the award, Lenawee County State Rep. Bronna Kahle, R-Adrian, visited the medical clinic in May and presented the state’s special tribute to medical clinic director Kelly Truchan, medical assistant Faith Neubig, administrative assistant Danielle Camera and director of counseling services Kellie Berger.
Truchan and her staff were commended for their important service and for always going above and beyond, the release said. The tribute was signed by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Lt. Gov. Garlin Gilchrist II, Kahle and state Sen. Dale Zorn, R-Onsted.
“During the 2021-22 academic year, the staff of the student medical clinic continued to make students the top priority amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. The team has an outstanding and positive influence across campus,” Truchan said in the release.
Attendees were also greeted by Adrian College president Jeffrey Docking, who noted his support.
Also in attendance was vice president of enrollment and student affairs, Frank Hribar; vice president of business affairs, Jerry Wright; and vice president and dean of academic affairs, Andrea Milner, amongst many others who gathered to congratulate those awarded.
The Adrian College Student Medical Clinic offers a range of services including COVID-19 testing, medical exams, common laboratory services, short-term prescriptions, influenza vaccinations and wellness education. The health center sees students for many illnesses such as cold and cough, acute injuries, allergies and general health concerns. In addition to physical illness, the health center can also assist in referrals to counseling services on-campus, as well as off-campus.
“The student medical clinic will cherish this tribute and work diligently to continue providing wonderful care to the community,” Truchan said.
