Multnomah County operates 12 student health centers at area schools, including Lane Middle School, here in Brentwood-Darlington! The clinics are like a regular doctor’s office—offering everything from immunizations and well-child exams to mental health counseling. Student health clinics are open to all Multnomah County youth (aged 5-18) and there is never an out-of-pocket cost for students or their families. Same day and walk-in appointments available. Find out more here!
We will also be hosting a representative from Multnomah County Health Centers at our December 7th meeting with Special Guest Sgt. Randy Teig.
