Louisiana School-Based Health Centers Annual Services Report, 1999-2000.
Louisiana State Office of Public Health, New Orleans. Dept. of Health and Hospitals.
Louisiana's initiative to assist local communities to develop and operate school-based health centers (SBHCs) is a nationally recognized model. This annual report illustrates the vital work being done in SBHCs in Louisiana to assist families in ensuring their children's health and well-being. Section 1 of the report details the continuous expansion of school-based health care since the passage of the Adolescent School Health Initiative Act in 1991. The section also compares Louisiana's SBHCs with other SBHCs nationally, and highlights programs and partnerships contributing to Louisiana's success, including the Continuous Quality Improvement Program. Section 2 summarizes the leading reasons children visit SBHCs, demonstrates the wide variety of services available, and reveals the critical role that health centers fill in the lives of the students and the schools they serve. Section 3 features profiles of each of Louisiana's operating school health centers, illustrating the strong links between the SBHCs and the communities they serve. The report's three appendices include definitions of the categories of conditions by which SBHC data are coded, the text of the state law that created the program, and the 1999-2000 financial statement.
