Health & Nutrition

healthcare for at risk boys

Health Center

We provide a thorough medical and dental evaluation for each boy upon enrollment. 

Our Health Center is used when students are sick or not feeling well. They can visit a nurse on campus who can evaluate them to determine if rest is needed or if they need to see a doctor or proceed to a Health Clinic.

The Health Center also helps coordinate any prescription medications for youth with their doctors and youth counselors and caseworkers.

Also important, our on-campus Dental Clinic is staffed by a registered dental assistant and is heavily supported by a large network or volunteer dental professionals and dentists all providing a full range of no-cost dental services.

Many of the boys who come to Hanna have never had routine health exams or had their teeth professionally cleaned and examined. Boys can also have the opportunity to receive orthodontics and free braces to straighten their teeth. After years of neglect, receiving proper dental treatment can be a transformational experience.
