What is SBHC?
School-Based Health Centers (SBHCs) are health clinics that bring preventive and immediate care, as well as counseling, health education and sometimes dental care, to children and adolescents at school. Services provided are determined by the need of the students.
In West Virginia (WV), most SBHCs are satellite clinics of community health centers. WV SBHCs follow a set of standards for care, including parental consent for enrollment and treatment.
