Our School Health program provides immunizations as well as health information and promotion to school-aged children, parents and teachers.
Our public health nurses also provide referrals for services and assessments such as speech, hearing, nutrition and mental health. Through the Healthy Schools Program, public health nurses also partner with school districts and schools to promote physical, emotional and social well-being using a comprehensive school health approach.
