McFarland Unified School District, has now partnered with the Kern Community College District, Adventist Health, and Chevron to launch a mobile clinic.
The news release stated that the mobile clinic was made possible with the help of a $200,000 donation from Chevron.
This mobile clinic will provide health care services to students and families who need it. Having this mobile clinic in McFarland will make it easier for those who can not travel to Delano or Bakersfield to get this type of care services.
McFarland Superintendent of School Aaron Resendez said access to state-of-the-art healthcare services is a nationwide challenge, and nowhere is that more evident than here in the City of McFarland.
“McFarland students and families have always had to travel to Bakersfield or Delano for basic health care needs. But, starting today, we are bringing those services directly to them,” said Resendez.
This mobile clinic will offer different types of health care services like checkups and immunization to families. Behavioral health services, laboratory work, physicals, and pediatric care will also be offered.
“Today is an exciting day because we get to help McFarland students and families access health care,” said Resendez. “Thanks to Adventist Health, Chevron, and Kern Community College District, we are bringing healthcare services directly to McFarland students and families through the mobile clinic. The clinic will help ensure that students are healthy, allowing them to learn and thrive.”
Resendez said McFarland schools are a tremendous point of pride in this community, and they are ensuring that a lack of healthcare services is not a barrier for students coming to school.
“If students or families don’t have health care services, we are going to bring those services directly to them,” said Resendez.
