Dr. Saxton came to UNCG from Kent State University where she had served as Director of Student Health. During her tenure, she provided leadership in blending the medical and counseling services in order to create a holistic approach to student health. She has served as a leader among her peers in the UNC system and one to whom others have sought counsel and advice. Tresa has also overseen the implementation of both the required student health insurance program and electronic medical records while serving as a campus resource for all things related to HIPAA. Dr. Cherry Callahan, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, noted that “Tresa’s expertise and willingness to challenge the ‘ways things have always been done’ have been instrumental in creating a first class Student Health Center. She will be missed!” Kathy Baber, current Associate Director of Student Health Services, will serve as Interim Director for the coming year.
