FDOH-Escambia School Health Division 1300 West Gregory Street Pensacola, FL 32502
The School Health Program at the Florida Department of Health in Escambia County consists of Registered Nurses who are committed to providing comprehensive health education to students attending public school in Escambia County, Florida. Our program staff uses evidence-based, interactive curricula to encourage students to adopt a healthier lifestyle by practicing behaviors and making choices that will positively impact them throughout their lives. The School Health Program also provides written educational materials for the students’ families and for school faculty and staff members, to promote healthy lifestyles within the entire school community.
In addition, the School Health Program oversees a Registered Nurse who provides vision, hearing, and BMI screenings, as well as health education classes, for preschool children who attend Early Learning Coalition VPK and school-readiness child care programs in Escambia County. After screenings are conducted, the RN makes appropriate referrals for children who do not pass screenings, and follows up with parents to obtain outcomes after the children have been evaluated. Educational offerings include handwashing education, dental health education, and nutrition/physical activity education. First Aid and CPR are also offered to staff in the childcare centers.
