A school-based health clinic officially opens on Jan. 16 at Iola Elementary School.

The Community Health Center of Southeast Kansas is providing the service. 

Students and faculty can access the clinic for a variety of health care needs, beyond the services typically provided by a school nurse. That could include well-child checkups, immunizations, tests for infectious diseases like strep throat and injuries at school, as well as writing prescriptions.
