CCSD School Clinics Benefit from Northside Hospital Cherokee Support

Posted On: Wednesday, October 17, 2018

CCSD NHC Donation 10 17 18

Celebrating the delivery of the pens at Hasty Elementary School Fine Arts Academy are, from left to right, CCSD Lead Nurse Gwen Chambers, School Nurse Brittany Doucette, RN and NHC physicians, Dr. Matthew Simmons and Dr. Stephen Rodes, who both practice with the Northside Hospital Sports Medicine Network.

Thanks to the support of partner Northside Hospital Cherokee, the Cherokee County School District received EpiPens at no cost for all of its schools!  The cost of the pens – auto-injectors that can be life-saving in cases of serious allergic reaction - was waived by manufacturer, Mylan, as part of its EpiPen4Schools program.  CCSD’s participation in the program was made possible by NHC Dr. Matthew Simmons, who wrote prescriptions for each school’s clinic.
