School Doctor

ssss  To oversee school health services, My School ITALY Kindergarten has physicians who are board-certified pediatricians or physicians with expertise in pediatrics and know about, among other things, disease outbreak control, risk management, immunizations and sports medicine. Out of our experience we have seen that having a school doctor is linked to better attendance for some students, especially those with chronic health conditions like asthma and diabetes. The American Academy of Pediatrics recognizes the important role physicians play in promoting the optimal biopsychosocial well-being of children in the school setting. Our school physicians focus on the needs of individual children as well as the public health of the school community. They often assist schools in accommodating students who have special health care needs, manage acute and chronic illness, and oversee emergency response, environmental health and safety, health promotion, and establish climate standards for outdoor activities.

My School ITALY Kindergarten acknowledges the interdependence of health and education and believes, “You cannot educate a child who is not healthy, and you cannot keep a child healthy who is not educated. ”Millions of children spend roughly 7 hours per day, 180 days per year, in school and may only visit their medical home once annually. A school physician can become a positive liaison between the medical home, the family, and the school. Our well-placed school physician expertise contributes to the creation of policies and practices that provide sound, evidence-based structure to coordinated school health teams.
