U.S. Senators Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden announced Thursday that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has awarded over $4-million to 12 School Based Health Centers across Oregon. Funding for these awards comes from the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Elaine Sieverson, a nurse with Deschutes County Health Services says these health centers go a long way to help keep kids in school: “School Based Health Centers are a really popular model with schools as well as legislators and our governor here in Oregon. Because they focus on prevention, staff in school based health centers can really take time to give parents and kids a lot of health education and a lot of guidance." An award of over $138,000 will go to the Crook County Health Department, and $500,000 is awarded to Deschutes County for School Based Health Centers.
