Through a partnership with Matilda Torres High School health services, we opened our second School-Based Health Center. Conveniently connected to the school nurse’s office, the state-of-the-art health center provides medical, dental, and behavioral health services to students, administration, and families in the community before, during, and after the school day. Our goal is to keep students healthy, active, and in-class learning.
With our school-based health center, we’re also expanding our healthcare pathways. Students can shadow staff to learn about the medical field, which could one day blossom into a career in healthcare. It’s a wonderful partnership, and as students are coming back, we can interact more and build relationships with school nursing and administrative staff.
