Description

Members of the media and the public are invited to attend a ribbon cutting to celebrate a new school-based health center on the campus of Normandy High School.

The health center began serving students Aug. 10 and is available to Normandy Schools Collaborative youth and staff. Private insurance and Medicaid will be accepted; students will not be turned away due to an inability to pay. Initially the health center will operate on Mondays and Thursdays.

Join us for:

  • A tour of the center
  • Conversations with partners involved
  • Refreshments provided by the NSC culinary team, and music from the NSC jazz quartet

"We are incredibly excited about the short- and long-term benefits of this project,” said Dr. Charles Pearson, superintendent of the Normandy Schools Collaborative. “Research has shown that young people are less likely to miss school due to illness when they have access to affordable healthcare options. We hope that with a resource like this conveniently located on one of our campuses, our families get needed health services, but also eliminate a barrier that can keep some students out of school. This collaboration can have a direct, positive impact on the entire community.”
