Medical

Pittsburg State strongly encourages survivors of any form of violence to seek medical attention as soon as possible, even if they feel no injury was sustained.

Medical providers can treat visible physical injuries, identify injuries that may not be visible, and where appropriate, also test for and treat sexually transmitted infections (STIs), test for pregnancy, and provide emergency contraception (if requested).

In addition, a hospital can test for the presence of alcohol or drugs (e.g. “date rape” drugs) and perform a rape evidence collection procedure, which can help maintain legal options.

University Police is here to help you 24/7. Call them to start all the processes and services. A law enforcement officer will transport you to a medical center.
