 School-Based Health Centers

​The Office of Whole Child Supports​ is working to expand school-based health services to rural communities in Georgia. The goal is to provide students the best opportunity to succeed by addressing medical, behavioral, dental, and vision health needs. School-based health centers (SBHCs) are proven to be an effective method for addressing these needs by meeting students where they are – in school. This model of healthcare delivery helps to eliminate barriers such as transportation, accessibility, and cost for children and families living in communities with little to no access to healthcare.
