Merriam Park, Health Partnership Clinic celebrate anniversary of Shawnee Mission’s first school-based clinic

Merriam Park students on Wednesday celebrated the first anniversary of Shawnee Mission’s first school-based clinic.

Merriam Park Elementary and Health Partnership Clinic this week marked the one-year anniversary of the school-based health clinic. (The clinic opened in late January 2018, but a previously scheduled event recognizing the milestone was canceled on account of bad weather).

Wael Mourad, chief health officer for Health Partnership, said the clinic is the first school-based clinic to open in Johnson County.
