Students in several area schools will soon be able to get a medical diagnosis without leaving the school building.  A Missouri Foundation for Health grant will allow CoxHealth telemedicine to be used in six elementary schools with the goal of reducing absenteeism. 

Over a three-year period, mobile telehealth carts will be placed in schools in Cassville, Forsyth, Monett, Mountain Grove, Ozark and Reeds Spring.  That will allow kids to be seen at school via video for acute ailments such as sore throats, chronic coughs and the flu.

Parent education will be available to all Greene County residents over the next three years because of a grant from the Missouri Foundation for Health.

The grant of just over $703,000 will pay for education provided by numerous collaborative agencies as they implement a best practice program called Triple P--Positive Parenting Programs, according to Community Partnership of the Ozarks.
