DEEP RUN ES SCHOOL BASED WELLNESS CENTER
DRES has a new school based wellness center! Children can receive medical care while they are in school by using telemedicine technology. A secure, two way, real time video link is used to connect the school nurse and your child to either his or her medical provider or a Howard County General Pediatric Emergency Room physician. Parents must complete the enrollment forms for their children to receive services and the school nurse will call you before visits. If you have a smart phone or computer, you may participate in the visit and talk with the doctor.Telemedicine visits are free or cost the same as a regular office visit, depending on the child’s health provider. To learn more about this convenient service, please read the flyer on our website and watch the video of an actual telemedicine visit.
