Lake Cumberland District Health Department - Services | Children | School Health

Although known best in the community as the “school nurse”, we offer many services and programs for children and adolescents. The program provides a large array of services. Some of these services include acute and chronic illness screenings, required acute and chronic treatments as prescribed by the primary care provider, KDE screenings, well child exams, immunizations, case management, referral and follow-up, individual health education, and referral to other health department staff for group health promotion and education activities.


Highly trained medical professionals provide children’s health care services. These professions adhere to guidelines set forth by the Department of Public Health’s Public Health Practice Reference ensuring your child’s care is provided at the highest possible professional standard. 

Preventive health services can detect minor problems before they become serious. Detecting these problems early is an effective way to improve quality of life and reduce health care costs. These services are available in our 54 satellite clinics located in area schools. Please contact the local health department for more information.
