School Based Health Clinic at International

We have a School-Based Health Center at the Academy of International Studies.  The clinic is staffed by a school nurse, Michelle Moss (RN), and a nurse practitioner, Josiane Alexandre (APRN), who work collaboratively with the CREC Medical Director.  Chyane Colon also works as health services administrative assistant in the clinic.  CREC International works collaboratively with your child’s primary care provider to promote continuity of care. The school nurse will provide routine care and first aid to all students and the nurse practitioner will be responsible for the following services:
