January 2015

In January of 2015, this work was expanded by opening the first School-Based Health Center (SBHC) at North Central High School in Kershaw. Realizing that graduating from high school is the greatest predictor of health, LWK set up the county’s first SBHC as a “minute clinic” to see students for sick visits and sports physicals. The SBHC has proven to increase students’ time spent in class, thus increasing the likelihood of receiving a high school diploma.
