Kim White, PhD, RN, PHCNS-BC
Hello. My name is Kim White. I have been a nurse since 1979. I began my School Nurse career here at Lyon Acadmy at Blow in Janurary, 2020. Prior to that for my most recent nursing career I taught nursing at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville for over 19 years and was the Director and a health care provider at the SIUE WE CARE Clinic in East St. Louis, Illinois for over 5 years. I am a nationally board certified Public Health Clinical Nurse Specialist. On the personal side, my husband and I moved to St. Louis about 2 1/2 years ago. We have 7 grandchildren (5 boys and 2 girls). I love to read, travel, cook, and attend live theater.
I look forward to being your child's school nurse and getting to know all of them and their families.
I believe that health is not just the individual, but the family and community - physical, mental and spiritual.
During these challenging times please remember to take some deep breaths and count to 10. None of us are perfect. But by pulling together we will make it.
I am here to use as a resource. As I find information about health resources and other things that I think might be of use, I will send information out via email to parents.
You will also be hearing from me if your child needs their immunizations updated, a physical, hearing or vision, dental care, lead or hemoglobin testing,
If your child has asthma, diabetes, seizures, sickle cell, needs to take medications at school, or has food allergies you will also be hearing from me.
