In Sickness and in Health – Keeping BCPS students well

Visits to the doctor’s office is a trip that every parent and/or guardian will have to take with their child.

Getting sick is inevitable, but Burke County Public Schools is using a program that gets students on the path to recovery quickly and efficiently. In this episode of Learn in Burke, we sit down with multiple health officials including Miranda Michaels, director of nursing for BPCS; Allison Bell, program director for Health-e-Schools; and Dr. Tonya Shuffler (DNP), a nurse practitioner with Health-e-Schools. Each of these women is involved with the telemedicine program that serves every single one of our schools.

Through the use of advanced technology, the program brings the doctor right into the school. Take a listen and hear how this program helps keep our students and employees well. We also are given tips on how to stay germ-free not only for the winter season, but all year long.

Pictured top left (from left) are MIranda Michaels, Alison Bell, Dr. Tonya Shuffler (who joined us via video chat).
