Louisiana School-Based Health Centers Annual Services Report, 2000-2001.
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), in place for 10 years, is a nationally-recognized model. This annual report illustrates the vital work being done in Louisiana's SBHCs over the past 10 years 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 that has occurred since the passage of the Adolescent School Health Initiative Act in 1991. This section also 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 highlights the critical role that health centers fill in the lives of the students and schools they serve. Section 3 features profiles of each of the operating school health centers, illustrating the strong links between the SBHCs and the communities they serve. Three appendices include sample diagnoses for each of the categories of conditions by which SBHC data are coded, the text of the state law that created the program, and the 2000-2001 financial statement.
