This article is the third in a four-part series on the status of women at Dickinson College by the President's Commission on the Status of Women dealing with women's health on campus. The College, while it does not offer any gynecological services at the health center, offers a referral service to private gynecologists at Belvedere Medical Center that are not free of charge. What studies have found however are that more women go to the Tri-County Family Planning Center where the cost is cheaper and they are able to receive more useful information. Women have asked that the referral service be set up for both places, but no action by the College had been taken.
