Project Term: 12 months; 2017-2018
Grant Amount: $75,000
For this project, the Lockwood School District and St. Vincent Healthcare will partner to develop a school based health center in a mobile unit located on the Lockwood School campus. This health center will not only provide comprehensive health care services for Lockwood students and staff, but will also be available to the entire community. Grant funding will be used to support staffing for the health center and will help re-purpose the mobile unit (formerly a dental care unit). Initially, the health care center will focus on offering preventative and primary care services, but ultimately hopes to expand to include behavioral health and dental services.
