During the 2024 solar eclipse, University Health Services staff will have a unique opportunity to experience the excitement of this momentous event. The office will be closed for one hour on the afternoon of April 8, from 3:00pm to 4:00pm, and Dr. Ethan Beaudett, our Chief Medical Officer, will be on call for all emergency calls received by our secretary.

We encourage everyone to take advantage of this time off and attend the solar eclipse safely and responsibly. It’s important to protect your eyes during a solar eclipse to avoid any potential long-term vision damage. Professor James Zawislan, an expert in optics, biomedical engineering and ophthalmology, explains how eclipse glasses can protect your eyes from sunlight.

If you need eclipse glasses before the total solar eclipse, you can get up to two pairs with a university ID from locations on the River Campus and at the Eastman School of Music. So make sure you are equipped with the necessary safety gear before you witness this amazing natural phenomenon!
