As School-Based Health Care Awareness Month begins this Friday, Interact for Health is looking at the progress being made to ensure that all children have access to health care. Several firsts were realized by the four school-based health centers funded by Interact that opened in Greater Cincinnati in 2018:
Together the four school-based health centers are expected to have about 10,000 patient visits in 2019.
This expansion of school-based health care will continue this year. Interact is funding a comprehensive center in Edgewood City Schools in Butler County and is developing an innovative plan to bring services to Brown County. We’ll also explore opportunities to expand services in existing centers.
Interact for Health regularly conducts research and collects data in order to monitor and evaluate our region’s health status and to measure public opinions about health policy.
Our Health in Action stories highlight the innovative work our grantees are doing to help reduce tobacco use, address the opioid epidemic and ensure that children can access health care through school-based health centers. We also interview people working on those issues at other organizations across the country to learn what works for them.
