LCPS Announces Launch of Mobile Health Clinic to Provide Free Physical and Wellness Checks

 

Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS), in partnership with Inova and The George Washington University School of Nursing, is launching a mobile health clinic to provide free physicals and wellness checks for LCPS students. To launch this new initiative, LCPS is hosting a dedication ceremony on June 22 at 10:30 a.m. at Sterling Middle to allow community members to tour the bus and learn more about the services offered. 

 

“This clinic will be a real service to the community,” said Dr. Clark Bowers, Office of Student Services Director. “We have residents who struggle to access basic healthcare. This lack of healthcare can affect all facets of their lives, including their children’s access to school. We hope this clinic will help alleviate some of the stressors on our families and help connect families to a medical home.” The LCPS Office of Student Services, which oversees student registration and student health services, supports the Mobile Health Clinic. 

 

The ultimate goal of the clinic is to help with the student registration process. “For some of our families, one of the main barriers to enrolling students in school is the lack of access to proper healthcare. All students new to LCPS are required to have a completed physical before starting school. This mobile clinic will provide that service to eligible LCPS families and help facilitate their enrollment in school,” said Sarah Eaton, LCPS' Outreach Services supervisor. 

 

Personnel from LCPS, Inova and The George Washington School of Nursing will staff the Mobile Health Clinic, and an Inova mobile health services bus will host the LCPS Mobile Health Clinic. Clinic staff will provide LCPS students access to required school physicals and referrals to community partners offering comprehensive medical care. 

 

In addition to physicals, students new to LCPS must receive a series of vaccinations before starting school. Students entering 7th and 12th grades must also receive vaccinations before entering those grades. Mobile Health Clinic staff will have information about vaccination clinics supported by the Loudoun County Health Department and other community partners that can provide LCPS families with additional support. 

 

Dates and locations for the Mobile Health Clinic are listed below.
