The possibility of free health care for your children is not a dream but a reality at many area middle and high schools.
School-Based Health Centers are now in 226 New York State schools, serving nearly 200,000 students and 20% of those are in rural areas, like Upstate New York. Carthage Area Central School has 8 of those centers, the North Country Children’s Clinic has 6 of centers and E.J. Noble Hospital in Gouverneur just opened their first center.
This week on Live Right Now Tonya Duerr, School-Based Health Center Coordinator, will be discussing how to get your child enrolled in the program and the many benefits.
Each week Live Right Now, brought to you by Carthage Area Hospital health experts, will outline a new health topic and discuss how to maintain your health.
