The School of Nursing at the University of Mississippi Medical Center operates several nurse-managed, school-based health clinics in the Metro-Jackson area. These health clinics are located at Galloway Elementary School, Johnson Elementary School and Lanier High School.
This is the first year for Galloway Health Clinic to be open at Galloway Elementary School. Due to the consolidation of Jackson Public Schools and the closing of Brown Elementary School, Brown Health Clinic was moved to Galloway Elementary School. This health clinic will provide an accessible source of primary and episodic health services to all students who attend Galloway Elementary. Services include comprehensive physical/mental health assessments, yearly required well-child checks, vision and hearing screenings, treatments for acute and chronic illness, as well as referrals to appropriate health care when an illness or treatment is out of the scope of practice for the nurse practitioner. In addition to health care services for the students at Galloway, health education will be provided to the faculty and staff who work at Galloway Elementary. We will also offer faculty and staff health screenings for those who desire this care.
