Grant Awarded to School Nurse Program
The Sharkey Family Foundation has awarded a grant for $7,500 to the Ashland Community Hospital Foundation in support of the School Nurse program. The Asante Ashland School Nurse program has been providing the services of 2.05 FTE nurses to elementary and middle school children in the Ashland and Phoenix-Talent school districts since 1997. Nurses provide the full range of health care including physical, mental and dental services to approximately 2,875 children and their families each year.
Thank you to the Sharkey Family Foundation for supporting this important program and thanks to our school nurses, Belinda Brown, RN, Brenda Schweitzer, RN, and Erin Hope-Sholty, LPN for keeping our school children healthy!
