“Youth with access to school-based health education and services better understand their health needs and take greater advantage of healthcare on site.”

Research shows us that adolescents with access to school-based health services, especially minority youth, show greater health knowledge and take significantly greater advantage of mental health and physical health services.

Key components of the Elev8 Baltimore health strategy include:

  • Preventative medical care and acute care management – physical exams, immunizations and treatment referrals, including dental and vision services
  • Age appropriate health education
  • Preventative mental health and referral services
  • Support of school climate programs and strategies
