Healthy Learners celebrates 25 years of service this year and 12 years for Healthy Learners Greenwood.  In the 2015-16 school year dental care was the greatest need followed by vision care and prescriptions such as Asthma Inhalers.  We work directly with school nurses in School Districts 50, 51, and 52 for our student referrals.  Each year 24 Partner Providers offer their medical services to assist the children served by Healthy Learners.

Healthy Children.   Better Students.   Thriving Communities
