From Angie Spence, Assistant Director of Community Health Services, and Director, Regional Alliance for Healthy Schools

RAHS School-based Health Centers are Open Year-round for In-Person and Virtual Appointments

Call your school-based health center to schedule an appointment.

The RAHS school-based health centers in Genesee County and in Washtenaw County are open for for virtual care and face-to-face care for select visits (including mental health care) by appointment only. Michigan Medicine safety policies and procedures are in place to protect patients, families, and staff.

We are taking the following steps to keep you safe upon entry to the health center:

  • Limiting the number of persons in the health center at any one time.
  • Asking COVID-19 screening questions to all who enter the health center.
  • Scheduling patients in advance for appointments or referring patients to care if needed.
  • Using personal protective equipment (aka “PPE”) to keep everyone safe.
  • RAHS health services include: Physical Exams, Sick Visits, Immunizations, Nutrition Counseling, Health & Fitness Education Programs and Groups, Confidential STI & Pregnancy Testing, Referrals for Community Resources, Confidential Mental Health Services and Psychotherapy, Vision Services, Dental Services, and more.

    We are open to all school-age youth 21 years old and younger. You do not need to be a registered student at these schools to receive services. We accept insured and uninsured patients, regardless of ability to pay. Interpreters and translation services available upon request.

    Did you know that RAHS is open to youth from the community? Please share with your friends and family! If they are 21 years of age or younger, they can receive mental & physical health services at RAHS school-based health centers!

    RAHS sincerely thanks our partner School Districts, Community and Faith Agencies, and Michigan Medicine departments that continue to collaborate to provide the best care possible to patients, families, and our communities.

    In Good Health,

    Angie Spence, MPA
    Director

    What’s better than sipping a cup of hot cocoa on a chilly winter day? Not much IMO. Although hot chocolate is packed with sugar, it also has some surprising health benefits! Hot chocolate contains antioxidants and flavanols, which can minimize the risk of stress-induced cardiovascular events. Hot chocolate also contains theobromine, an alkaloid in cocoa, that can repress coughs. Cocoa can help regulate energy use, reduce appetite and inflammation, increase fat oxidation, and trick the stomach into feeling full. Hot cocoa can also help improve mood and symptoms of depression although it's not clear if this is due to its’ flavanols, the caffeine it contains, from the conversion of tryptophan to serotonin, a natural mood stabilizer, or a combination of these. ...
