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.
In the middle of the spring 1976 semester, the Office of Student Services initiated a trial program of gynecological referal. The funding for the problem was limited so no services were provided by the school. The goal of this program was rather to find out what services women at Dickinson needed. They hoped to provide such car at the college in the future.
