Ready for back to school?

"We serve a lot of families enrolling in school in Baltimore for the first time. We recently saw a single mom and her two children who immigrated from Honduras. After their first visit, the whole family connected with care. The youngest is up-to-date on vaccines and Community Health Workers helped mom get both kids enrolled in school. Being able to go to school is so important. It's a source of mental health care, a place to get meals, an active routine, a space to make friends and find a community."

Director of Pediatric and Family Medicine, Iris Leviner, MD

Baltimore City and County schools have started back in-person and Iris and the rest of her team share resources to support teachers, parents/guardians and their little ones.
