Oakland School District Eyes Universal Health Access
By the end of the year, the Oakland Unified School District could become the first major urban U.S. school district to provide universal access to primary health care to all students. Since 2010, nine new school-based health care centers have opened or are scheduled to open this year, for a total of 26 centers in the district. The $18 million initiative is funded primarily by the city of Oakland, Alameda County and Kaiser Permanente.
