Oakland Opens New SBHC

Community members, including Oakland Mayor Jean Quan, celebrate the opening of the West Oakland Middle School Health Center.

Oakland leaders and the wider community were on hand in early November to celebrate the opening ceremony of their newest school-based health center.

The West Oakland Middle School Health and Family Resource Center features a state-of-the-art health clinic, a computer lab, community meeting space, and a garden where students grow fresh produce. Oakland Mayor Jean Quan was among dignitaries who attended the opening of the facility, which also includes a comprehensive dental exam clinic. School board officials and community members were given a tour of the center by student peer educators.
