Biographical / Historical

Until the move to Towson, students at the school were treated by neighborhood physicians. In 1923, the Maryland State Normal School was awarded a federal grant that allowed for the hiring of a campus physician. These doctors often also taught health classes on campus. Besides attending to acute medical issues on campus, all students of the school were expected to undergo physical examinations every year by the campus physician until the early 1960s. In 1963, the first Health Center was constructed on campus and named after Anita Dowell who helped establish the school's health education curriculum. In 2014, the health center moved to the Ward and West facility.
