School Health Advocate of the Month — March 2024

Thank you for your dedication to closing the gaps in children’s healthcare!

In 2022, Cleburne ISD launched SchoolMed, elevating their commitment to student health. At Lowell Smith Intermediate, Nurse Alissa Skoog, LVN, has aided in paving the way for increased access to care for her students.

With a decade of experience as an LVN, Nurse Alissa brings a wealth of expertise gained from diverse medical settings, including internal medicine, ER, OB/GYN, and pulmonary care. She takes that knowledge and integrates it into her school clinic every day.

The success of SchoolMed at Lowell Smith Intermediate is due in large part to the supportive staff as they work with the clinic in any way possible to meet the needs of the students in and out of the classroom. Nurse Alissa’s dedication to fostering connections with her students has been pivotal as well.

“I want the students to feel comfortable coming to the clinic and being an advocate for their own needs,” Nurse Alissa said.

Using SchoolMed on campus has empowered Nurse Alissa to use more of her skills by using point-of-care testing and more hands-on medical interventions. She’s passionate about doing everything she can for her students and hopes to continue her education with a BSN one day.

We take pride in partnering with exceptional school nurses like Alissa Skoog and applaud Cleburne ISD’s steadfast commitment to enhancing health accessibility for their students each day.

Thank you, Alissa Skoog, for helping close the gaps in children’s healthcare!
