Cheboygan Area Schools will soon offer more than just an education. It will also offer students a designated health center.
Thunder Bay Community Health Center is opening up a new location inside Cheboygan’s Intermediate school.
The center will offer things like immunizations, dental care, and behavioral health counseling. Services will be available to any Cheboygan area school district students.
Cheboygan Area Schools Superintendent, Mark Dombroski, says no family will be turned away.
“I just believe that our student population, were pushing, were above 60 percent of free and reduced that the financial need is there in this area. No family will be refused service, if they do not have any means of pay, they will get it taken care of” says Dombroksi.
Dombrowski says Thunder Bay already had previously opened a health center in Onaway schools. They plan to use that as a model.
This is the 103rd school based health care center to open in Michigan. The center is expected to open within the next few weeks.
