The SANE program at Student Health Services is temporarily paused. If you are interested in SANE services or would like to learn more about survivor support available at OSU, please contact the Center for Advocacy, Prevention and Education (CAPE). CAPE provides free and confidential comprehensive advocacy services. A CAPE advocate can work with you on a plan for accessing medical care, including forensic medical examinations at Sarah's Place.
We're committed to taking an active stance in survivor-focused health care.

SHS offers a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) program to support any student who is a survivor of sexual assault.

By offering exams at the campus health center, sexual assault survivors can be in familiar surroundings with caring clinicians. Survivors may continue seeing a Student Health clinician for any other concerns, allowing continuity of care and sensitivity to their experience.
