Allergy and Asthma
SHS hopes to assist you in any way possible with the management of your allergy and asthma symptoms while you are an OSU student.
Many people suffer from allergies, especially seasonal allergies. The Willamette Valley, which includes Corvallis, is notorious for causing increased symptoms for allergy and asthma sufferers. Many people with asthma also suffer from allergies, which can trigger their asthma symptoms. However, asthma can occur without allergic symptoms, such as exercise-induced asthma. To meet your educational needs as efficiently and effectively as possible, this page has been divided into two main links:
What is the Allergy and Asthma Clinic?
The Allergy and Asthma Clinic provides primary treatment and education about allergy and asthma with the goal of optimizing control of your symptoms and, in so doing, improving your quality of life. If you need treatment for symptoms, medication refills, or a medical evaluation you should make an appointment with a clinician. The nurses in the department see patients who are referred by a clinician for pulmonary function testing, education, or information on available resources. Nurses also work with outside providers to give immunotherapy (allergy shots).
Why see us?
As college health care providers, we are not only able to provide allergy and asthma care, but we do so with the ultimate goal of keeping you fit and healthy so you can be academically successful. We can also refer you to other campus resources that can assist you with a variety of problems.
How do I make an appointment?
If you are experiencing severe asthma or allergy symptoms (difficulty breathing), seek medical attention immediately at Student Health Services if the clinic is open, or at an alternate clinic or Emergency Room. If symptoms are life threatening call 9-1-1.
Call the main Student Health Services number: 541-737-WELL (9355) to schedule an appointment with a clinician for allergies and/or asthma. If you have questions please call: 541-737-7565 to speak with an asthma/allergy nurse.
What should I bring with me?
Bring a list of all medications with you to your appointment. Also, bring any other relevant information you may have.
