President's Discretionary

Branford Walsh School Based Health Center

2017 - $25,000

This grant will support the school-based health center at Branford’s Walsh Intermediate School to open 45 minutes before the school day begins. During that time, the facility will serve as an urgent care center for students. Making care available on an urgent-care basis before school is expected to prevent extended absenteeism, unattended medical issues, emergency room visits, and missed school time. This addition to the school-based health center’s services is part of a partnership with Yale-New Haven Hospital.
