The school seems a logical place to attempt this type of health care. Teens spend one-third of their waking hours at school so it's easy access for them; students don't have to miss class to go to a doctor which reduces absenteeism.
The focus is on prevention, which reduces medical costs and it's a comprehensive service covering all health issues. And although students have to have parental permission to use the centers, once they walk through the door, it's 100-percent confidential.
