County to provide health services to Colton School District

Clackamas County will begin offering a variety of health-related services to students in the Colton School District starting on Nov. 2.

The Health Centers Division will offer well-child check-ups, sports physicals, immunizations, behavioral health services and more to any student in the district. The office will be located at Colton High School and will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Thursday when school is in session.

"Providing these services to Colton students is something we’re thrilled to do,” said Health Centers Division Director Deborah Cockrell. “Our goal is to have healthy and safe communities. Making it easier for local residents to have access to health care is a giant step toward our goal."

Students will receive confidential medical services by qualified medical professionals, who focus on preventing illness and promoting healthy behaviors. Benefits of this clinic include:

"Getting students access to quality, affordable health care is a primary concern among all school districts, and Colton is no different," said Koreen Barreras-Brown, the Colton School District Superintendent. "We hope our students and their families take advantage of this unique opportunity to access health care that will ultimately last them a lifetime."
