School Health Alliance / Community Health Alliance is a partner and supporting organization to the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools (WS/FCS). The SHA operates school-based health centers and programs in partnership with our schools and other community health organizations to provide medical and mental health services that promote the health and educational success of school-aged children and adolescents. School-based health centers provide services to students, regardless of their ability to pay. School-based health centers are similar to a doctor’s office, but are located in our schools. School-based health center services include comprehensive well-child and adolescent exams, immunizations, diagnosis and treatment of illness or injury, management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes, mental health assessment and treatment, health education, nutrition education, and health promotion/disease prevention programs. School-based health centers keep youth in Forsyth County healthy, in school, and ready to learn.
