“The school-based health center is important to me because it helps kids when they need help, keeps kids clean and healthy. They help when they’re sick and they can stay in school.”
“The Taylor Teen Health Center is like a family to me. When ever I have problems in school, home, or medical problems they are always there. It’s not just a health center it’s also like a big support group.”
“The school-based health center is important to me because it provides health care when I’m sick, support when many teens need it, and it provides the information that I need on how to stay abstinent and why it is important to be this way.”
