TimelyMD & FCCC Supporting Student Well-Being
California Community Colleges Support Students with Virtual Health
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit in 2020, community colleges in California had to adapt to meet the needs of students as classes shifted to being online. Community colleges across California—including Los Rios Community College District, Modesto Junior College, and Porterville College—faced a daunting challenge as COVID-19 spread across the country. Students of color, low-income and working-class students were some of the hardest hit by the pandemic, both physically and economically.
When students were away from campus and access to services was limited or unavailable, a virtual health platform provided health and wellness services to fill the gap.

A total well-being approach
With compassionate, culturally competent, and expert providers who listen, assess, and care for student needs, virtual health provides total well-being care when on-campus resources aren’t available or are overwhelmed.
Community college student’s needs prioritized
TimelyMD’s Basic Needs service was directly born out of the need for an additional layer of support for community college students. Now, all community college campus partners nationally receive Basic Needs support which helps students get connected to low- or reduced-cost community resources.
“TimelyMD offers an extension to our current services. It is quick, accessible and always available. School health services end at 5 p.m., so students need additional access. It is also an easy referral solution for our online instructors.”
Amy Yribarren, RN
Director of Health Services at Modesto Junior College
On-demand access to care
Virtual health enables students to have 24/7 access to a diverse team of experts, from doctors and nurse practitioners to mental health specialists and health coaches. Students can pick their provider to best understand their needs and identity.
