    Identify best practices for implementing a school based telehealth center Identify clinic flow models Outline strategies for including your local medical community into your SBHC

    Description: This panel of school nurses will lead you through a typical day in a SBHC. How do they juggle so many responsibilities? How do they know what needs their attention? This can be an overwhelming task. You will leave this session with a better understanding of how to strategically organize your SBHC so that you arent swallowed up with tasks. Build It And They Will Come, Right? WRONG! A Guide to Marketing Your SBHC Presenter: April Aldridge Bio: April Aldridge is an Assistant Superintendent in Decatur County Schools whose primary role is a focus on Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment. April graduated from Mercer University with degrees in Early Childhood Education and Spanish, received a Masters and Specialists in Educational Leadership from Georgia College and State University and her Ed.D in Educational Leadership from University of Alabama at Birmingham. Technology and Medicine together were never foreseen as a initiative she would help lead, however, when proposed for the Decatur County School System to enter into partnership with Memorial Hospital and Manor two years ago to write a grant for creating school based TeleHealth clinics, she was all in. Students can't learn if they can't have access to medical care. Living in Southwest Rural Georgia, access can often be a barrier for students in the Decatur County School System. Using technology as a catalyst for establishing school based TeleHealth Clinics is proving to not only be beneficial for the overall health and wellness of students, but is also mirroring the next steps in curriculum and instruction as we move into blended and personalized learning experiences for all students. The challenge to establish initial clinics has been met. Now we look for ways to educate, encourage, and engage families to take full advantage of the services that can be provided. Currently, two sites have established clinics, one site in in the initial startup phase, and the goal is to partner until all Decatur County Schools have established and thriving TeleHealth Clinics that support the academic opportunities and success of our students.
