Solar Eclipse Excitement and Safety at University Health Service on April 8th!

UHS Gets Ready to Surpass Expectations with “Eclipse” Event on April 8!

During the upcoming total solar eclipse on April 8th, University Health Service staff will have the opportunity to experience the excitement of this historic event. In order to allow staff members to take part in the eclipse, the office will be closed for one hour in the afternoon from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. Dr. Ethan Beaudett, our Medical Chief, will be on-call during this time to handle any urgent calls received by our answering service.

We encourage everyone to witness this remarkable event and take proper precautions to protect their eyes. Professor James Zavislan, an expert in optics and biomedical engineering as well as ophthalmology, explains how eclipse glasses work to shield your eyes from the sun’s harmful light. These glasses can be obtained with a University ID from various locations on the River Campus and at the Eastman School of Music.

It is important to remember that looking directly at the sun during a solar eclipse can cause long-term damage to your vision. To ensure a safe and enjoyable experience, make sure to use eclipse glasses and follow all safety guidelines provided by experts in the field. Enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and make memories that will last a lifetime!
