Expanded Health Care Services For Students

Dear Roosevelt Students,

As we continue to navigate the difficulty of COVID-19, and the implications it can have on our students’ health, Roosevelt University is constantly assessing how it can better support student wellness. With this in mind, the Dean of Students Office is excited to announce the expansion of services offered by the Virtual Care Group (VCG).  Students are now eligible to receive UNLIMITED talk therapy sessions as a benefit of their enrollment with the Virtual Care Group.  This expansion means that students now have the ability to access licensed medical doctors and licensed therapists 24/7 using their computer, phone, or other mobile devices from anywhere in the United States. Students can access these services by activating their account at mdlive.com/VCG or texting VCG to 635483.
