The Truman School-Based Health Center (SBHC) is one of eleven school health center service sites operated by Access Health Louisiana in Jefferson Parish.  It is located in Marrero on the west bank side of the Mississippi River on the campus of Harry S. Truman Elementary.

This year, telemedicine appointments are offered for Primary Care and Behavioral Health services for any student participating in virtual learning from home!

The Truman SBHC is easily accessible for elementary students because it is located on the first floor of the elementary building across from the cafeteria courtyard.  Students can visit the health center and parents can request that their child receive immunizations or check-ups by communicating information with the health center staff.  All students must have a current consent and enrollment form on file at the health center in order to be seen by medical staff.  Consent and enrollment forms are sent home at the beginning of the year; however, parents may sign their child up for services at any time during the school year.  Online fillable consent forms are available on the right side of this webpage.

Nurse Practitioner Nicole Taylor offers children and adolescents immunizations, well & sick visits, sports physicals, as well as acute and diagnostic care.  Both enjoy working in school-based healthcare.  She is assisted by Registered Nurse Whitney Burnam who also serves as the school nurse.  A Licensed Clinical Social Worker offers counseling and support services for students including:  stress and anger management, dealing with anxiety, bullying, substance abuse, grief counseling, and communication.  Psychiatric care is available through Dr. Gurjinder Singh of Tulane Psychiatry if needed.

Co-payments are waived for all students and faculty/staff enrolled at our SBHC.  Commercial insurances including Medicaid and Medicare are accepted.  Students who are uninsured can also receive care with a consent and enrollment form on file with the health center.  Any medications prescribed for your child may be filled through out Access Health Louisiana Pharmacy and delivered to your home.  We also work with nearby Walgreens and CVS pharmacies and can have most prescriptions filled at a discounted rate.

Students needing emergency care after hours, please call 9-1-1.

Access Health Louisiana operates 41 school based health centers in twelve parishes.  To learn more about our successful program, click here.
