My Students

My students live in low-income and poverty-stricken area and lack health community resources and health maintenance supplies in their homes. Many students utilize the nurse's office for basic health needs that are unable to be addressed at home with the assistance of a parent or guardian.

Our school system is the safe place for many students even above their own homes and families.

Consequently, the demand for first aid supplies, fulfillment of basic health needs, and health-related advice is a large part of the daily duties of our school nurses.

My Project

Our school serves 1200 students in grades 10-12 in a low-income area. Students use the nurse's office for first aid supplies that they cannot get at home from a parent or guardian. We also serve a large homeless population of teens.

These items would greatly serve our student population who use the nurse's office as a first-line treatment stop instead of home or their primary care provider.

Female students use a large amount of feminine hygiene products. Some local churches also provide clothing for our students. These supplies would be used as a method of primary treatment and prevention to ensure a better quality of health for our teens and adolescents.
