EXPANSION:  A new children health care center in Brighton

A Kids First Health Care center is now operating inside the Brighton High School. There are eight Kids First health care center in Colorado providing all medical care, even dental and mental health counseling. The best part is that administrators will not turn any student away no matter their health insurance or family income circumstances.

Medical professionals are there to take care of any need: cough, sore throat, pink eye, etc. The centers get the students the care they need fast because they believe no student can do well in school if they’re not healthy and ready to learn. The school says it is also a good way for student athletes to get their yearly physicals taken care of.
