Alaska high school opens teen health clinic

Bethel (Alaska) Regional High School, a public high school with roughly 500 students, opened a new health clinic in a building next to the school last week, according to a report from KYUK

The clinic will offer services free of charge, including sports physicals, routine exams, medical testing, pregnancy testing, STD testing and sexual health consultation, according to the report. Some services may require parental consent, according to the report.

The high school is working with the Bethel-based Yukon Kuskokwim Health Corp., and Juneau, Alaska-based Public Health Nursing to offer services at the clinic.
