Board of Directors
The mission of PATH is to improve access to health care services for youth and their families in Pender County. 
Pender Alliance for Teen Health was established after we identified a real need to make healthcare more accessible to students and their families. 

About PATH


The Pender County Health Department is our partner and medical provider. At each of our School-Based Health Centers children who are enrolled in the PATH program can seek medical attention right at school with our Family Nurse Practitioner or one of our Registered Nurses.  Mental Health and Counseling are provided in our centers by our partner Coastal Horizons.
