OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman says last week's shooting at a Connecticut elementary school that killed 26, including 20 children, was an evil tragedy, but the response should include more than just gun control.
It’ll be the second facility located in an OPS high school, and the eighth school-based health center. Jeanee Weiss, Director of Healthy Futures for Building Bright Futures, says the seven existing sites served 4,300 children and families last school year. In addition to medical care, staff at the health centers can provide referrals and help families get enrolled in programs such as Medicaid.
