In East Baton Rouge Parish, public school students have access to different levels of health care depending on which school they attend.

At 11 EBR schools, Health Centers in Schools has school-based health centers, which are similar to a physician's office. These clinics also have a social worker to help students with issues like ADHD, anxiety or just everyday school worries.

All other schools that don't have health centers have a school nurse on site either full-time or part-time, depending on the school. School nurses can help with minor health issues and refer students for more extensive care.
