PATH operates two School Based Health Centers at Pender High School and Cape Fear Middle/Elementary Schools. At each of the PATH 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. All other Pender County Schools are connected by visiting the School Nurse at each school via our TeleHealth network.

Your PATH to good health
Pender Alliance for Teen Health was established after we identified a real need to make healthcare more accessible to students and their families.
