One of the many services offered at UW’s Health Services is the Family Health Clinic. This clinic was created to support family members of registered University of Waterloo undergraduate and graduate students, visiting scholars, and post-doctorates. This clinic provides family members (parents, spouses, children) their primary health care (prenatal, well child, chronic illness management, urgent illness) so they are not left having to seek routine care provision through emergency rooms and walk-in clinics.
