Children’s Aid School Based Health Centers Get Their Report Cards
The reports are in! School Based Health Centers (SBHC) are considered by experts as one of the most effective and efficient ways to provide preventive health care. Children can receive medical, dental and mental health care right inside their school, resulting in fewer absences. Parents can feel confident that their child will be taken care of and that they do not need to miss a day of work, a great financial burden for most families using Children’s Aid Society services.
The Children’s Aid Society operates five SBHCs in our Community Schools in Harlem and Washington Heights. Important 2009-2010 School Based Health Center Facts:
