This week, CHC opened a new school-based health center at Domus’ Trailblazers Academy and Stamford Academy in Stamford. It will bring on-site medical and mobile dental care to approximately 300 middle and high school students. The center, located at 83 Lockwood Ave., is the first that CHC has opened in Fairfield County and one of only 20 throughout the state.
Jane Hylan, our director of school health services observed, ““Prior to our opening this school-based health center, several students from these academies came to our Franklin Street Community Health Center for sports physicals”.
Our President and CEO, Mark Masselli noted that “School-based health centers are a critical part of our work, because they allow us to reach more uninsured and underserved children and adolescents and provide them with the highest quality of care during their formative years”.
