Ribbon-cutting for Glen Lea E.S. Telehealth Clinic
November 30 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
On Nov. 30, a ribbon-cutting ceremony at Glen Lea Elementary School will mark the opening of an innovative clinic that will expand students’ access to health care. The Glen Lea Telehealth Clinic will enable students at the school in eastern Henrico County to consult with doctors, nurses, dentists and other health professionals using an internet webcam. The clinic is a joint project of Henrico County Public Schools, the Henrico Education Foundation, Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU, and VCU Dental Care. A short ceremony will be livestreamed starting at 4 p.m. on Nov. 30. Members of the media are invited to attend in person. Members of the public can view a livestream of the event by going to www.henricoschools.us.
An area at the school has been remodeled for the clinic and equipped with technology for the telehealth consultations. Parents and guardians will also be able to participate in the appointments virtually.
