RAHS Clinic - Regional Alliance For Healthy Schools

LCS RAHS clinic sites are at the High School and Middle School but any child can be seen from age 5 until age 21. Once a consent is filled out, it is good no matter what school the child attends and does not need to be submitted again unless health information changes dramatically.

RAHS clinics have Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Social Workers and Registered  Dietitians.  Services include asthma care, lab testing (throat swabs & blood work), counseling for mental health needs, nutrition & exercise counseling.

The clinics in the Middle school and the High school work with Mobile Dentist and covers cost of that dental exam for those without dental coverage.

The clinics also work with Food Gatherers and each clinic stores emergency food boxes.

The clinics work with Kellogg eye center and have field trips for eye exams (and free glasses and replacement glasses for students without vision coverage)
