Thank You Nurses and Providers – Recognizing Our Most Active Partners

Posted on April 4th, 2018


Founded in 1992 through a collaborative effort between several community partners, Healthy Learners has always been about collaboration. Collaboration is a core value of Healthy Learners and collaboration with our partners is still key. We simply couldn’t provide children with access to quality health care without school nurses, health care providers and supporters.

Each and every partner is critical to meeting unmet health care needs. At this time, we want to recognize the school nurses and providers from the fall semester (August – December 2017) with the highest involvement in Healthy Learners programming.

The following school nurses referred the most students and/or the highest percentage of the total student enrollment at their schools. The providers listed delivered the most services in their program areas for the fall semester.
