School Health Services
The Genesee County Health Department School Health Services Program enhances
the educational processes of children and youth through improvement in their
health status and contribute to their attainment of greater knowledge.
Public health nurses strengthen and facilitate the educational process by
improving and protecting the health status of school age children and staff by
identifying and assisting in the removal or modification of health related
barriers to the learning and teaching process. The major focus of public
health nursing services is the prevention of illness and disability, and the
early detection and correction of health problems. Public Health Nurses,
as needed, in cooperation with the school administration, revise or develop
district policy and procedures that are compatible with state law. Funding
for the program is collaboration between local districts and Genesee
County. For more information, contact Randa McCall at 257-3591.
