The Healthy Kids Clinic program provides on-site School-Based Health Centers at each of the 45 public schools within the Adair, Anderson, Casey, Clinton, Cumberland, LaRue, Lincoln, Russell, and Wayne County school systems. Licensed nurse practitioners provide acute care for students and staff as well as promote preventive care through well-child checks, immunizations, and health education. As a result, children receive care more quickly, decreasing the loss of academic time, and parents spend less time away from work for routine checks and appointments. As part of the Healthy Kids Clinic, preventive and restorative oral health care are also provided to students on-site through CFMC’s mobile oral health program.
“Keeping students healthy and learning are goals that we share with both local school systems and parents,” stated Dr. Eric Loy, CEO of Cumberland Family Medical Center, Inc. “By providing these services at the schools, we can ensure that our students remain healthy, are better equipped to learn, and will continue to achieve at high physical and academic levels.”
Kendra Mitchell, Community & Public Relations Coordinator for the Lincoln County School System, was presented with an award in recognition and appreciation for the partnership with Lincoln County School System and the Healthy Kids Clinics now located and operational on each of their school campuses.
