Dr. Claire Murphy
Director of Health Services

How long have you been working at Alvernia?

This is my third academic year. I started in August 2009.

Can you please describe your job here at Alvernia?

I am the director of Health Services.  I am in charge of the Health and Wellness Center as well as other services our department provides, like health education and promotion.

What is your favorite part about your job?

I really enjoy taking care of students. As a family doctor I am trained to see all age groups but this is one of my favorites. I love just talking to students and helping them make better choices for their health.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I like reading, travelling and most of all spending time with my family.

Where is your favorite place to eat on or off campus?

The Tomcat Cafe on Penn Avenue in Sinking Spring. They have great lunch and dinner, and I hear breakfast is pretty great too but I haven't tried it.
