Laramie, Wy – Wednesday the high school in Ethete is going to open a teen health clinic. It is part of a pilot project in six Wyoming school districts to try and improve the health of students and teachers. The school health coordinator in Ethete, Marcy Tepper says the clinic will be staffed with a doctor and a nurse and should be very beneficial.
Other districts in the pilot project are working to get more nutritious food to students and increase physical activity. Some are also working on staff wellness projects.
Each district gets between 50 and 65 thousand dollars a year for three years.
