Miami, FL – In collaboration with several other groups in Miami-Dade County, in 2008, PACT secured the implementation of the program HealthConnect in Our Schools for 101 schools. HealthConnect is a program which assigns a team of professionals, often nurses, social workers, and health aides, to bring many needed health services to schools. Schools with a HealthConnect team are capable of providing physical, behavioral, and mental health services. As of June 2010, there were health clinics in place in 165 local public schools.
