What is the Ashland High School Based Health Center (SBHC)?

The SBHC is a medical clinic operated by La Clinica that works in partnership with Ashland High School to provide physical, mental, and preventative health care to all students, regardless of insurance status or ability to pay.

What are the benefits of a SBHC?

Healthy children are our community’s future, and as part of our mission we bring our programs directly to where the kids are The School.
