    School-Based Health Centers are staffed by L.A. Unified school physicians and nurse practitioners who see only students and their siblings. Families can receive help with enrolling their children into Medi-Cal to receive services. These clinics are “assessment only.” They perform physicals and give required childhood immunizations, but do not provide continuous care for patients with chronic conditions. Reproductive health care is available at certain locations.
