If your student needs minor medical care or behavioral health services during the summer months, the University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC) and the Mississippi Department of Education have you covered. They are partnering to provide telehealth services free of charge to any student who is enrolled in a Mississippi K-12 public school.
The School-based Telehealth Summer Program begins June 1, and participation is simple. To make an appointment, just call 601.815.2020 and ask for a summer telehealth visit. Your child can see a UMMC nurse practitioner or licensed counselor using a smartphone, tablet, or computer wherever you are. A parent or guardian must be present for the virtual visit.
Minor medical care is available seven days a week from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Behavioral health services are available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Click here to learn more.
A big thanks to UMMC and MDE for supporting Mississippi’s public school students and their families through this program. We hope all students have a healthy and happy summer!
