Vaden is dedicated to the health and wellness, both physical and mental, of Stanford students. Vaden is the first stop for diagnosis and treatment of illness, injury and ongoing conditions, as well as for preventive counseling and education. Other Vaden services include counseling and wellness resources, pharmacy, physical therapy, insurance, travel clinic, the Confidential Support Team and the office of Alcohol Policy and Education (OAPE). Vaden also offers Cardinal Care, the university-sponsored student health insurance plan. The center was made possible by a gift from the Vaden family.
