Together in Health
is a School Based Health Center partnership between The Wright Center and local area school districts that aims to improve the health, wellness and academic performance of the students and remove barriers to learning through the establishment of a School Based Health Center (SBHC) model. The program is currently operational in the Scranton School District.

How does our staff partner with school staff?
School nurses, counselors, special educators, teachers and administrators can help identify students who can benefit from our services and refer them to our primary care or mental health services. This creates a community connection between the staff and our Health Center.

What if your child does not have health insurance?
The Wright Center’s Together in Health locations operate as a safety net provider in our community; our medical services are provided to students regardless of their ability to pay. The Together in Health team can help your family navigate the health care system and find a plan that is best for your child and family.
