ALL About WISH

                                                                                                             
Dear Parents:

Wayne Initiative for School Health (WISH) advocates for the health of children and addresses abroad range of needs. Our purpose is to provide affordable, accessible, physical, mental, preventative health services to adolescents.

The WISH center here at Dillard Middle School is located on the campus and is open    
Monday through Friday during school hours. The Staff includes a full time Registered Nurse, Nurse Practitioners, preventive and mental health counselors and additional support staff. 

Students with health insurance or Medicaid coverage will be asked to provide information to allow billing of nurse practitioner services. WISH can now bill Blue Cross and Blue Shield. There will be NO charge for registered nurse services and no sick child with a signed consent form will be turned away. Ashley Pate, the Registered Nurse is present every day in the WISH Center to take care of DMS students!

The goal for WISH is to help Wayne County students succeed in school by promoting healthy lifestyles, and providing comprehensive health care to meet the needs of all students including but not limited to annual physical exams, address chronic and acute medial conditions., immunizations, and referrals for nutrition, health education and counseling services. Medical information will be updated with your child's primary care provider. 

The WISH Center has a Family Nurse Practitioner at Dillard three days a week.The FNP can perform well child physicals, see and treat sick children. All medical visits are documented in the medical record of those children who are Goldsboro Pediatric patients.WISH works closely with Goldsboro Pediatrics to ensure great communication and continuity of care among our students.
