Healthy Learners began serving the students of Allendale County in the fall of 2005. We expanded to begin serving Hampton County in 2021. The program serves elementary, middle and high school students in Allendale and Hampton Counties who lack adequate access to health care. In 2019, Healthy Learners piloted mass vision and hearing screenings for students in Allendale County. Since this pilot, we have done screening events in partnership with childcare providers and school districts in Allendale and Hampton counties. These screenings allow us to identify children with health barriers to learning, then provide access to the health care that they need to thrive in school. Healthy Learners is continuing to use this screen, refer, serve strategy to expand our reach and impact into other rural counties in the Lowcountry.
