Studies show that more than fifty percent of families in the United States do not have a family physician. Adding to that challenge, over the past two years, Covid 19 has exposed even more gaps in healthcare access which can be an issue for many families in Saint Louis Public Schools (SLPS). In efforts to close gaps in healthcare services in school year 2022-2023, SLPS is introducing telehealth care services free of charge to all students, through Hazel Health, Inc. With parental permission, all District students, regardless of insurance, will have access to on-demand virtual care from pediatricians and physician assistants. These medical professionals will conduct exams (approximately 10 mins.), diagnose illnesses and prescribe over-the-counter medications all from the school nurses’ office! Translation services are available to students and families as needed. CLICK HERE for more information.
