MHS Environmental Club
MHS Environmental Club in the woods

On Sunday afternoon a staff member and her family were hiking to Toms Creek Falls. áThey

noticed a group picking up trash. áThey recognized the groups as the The Environmental Club from McDowell High School. The staff members had this to say about the group, "What a very unselfish way to spend aáSundayáafternoon. This is a beautiful and special place where we enjoy hiking as a family. We appreciate this club for their time and effort....what a difference they made. I felt that you would love to know this story... sometimes we do not know what goes on unless people share."
MY Health-e-Schools


MY Health-e-Schools is improving access to healthcare for students in McDowell Countyáthrough telemedicine. The technology is based on high-definition videoconferencing using specially equipped stethoscopes and cameras so that a centrally located health care provider can examine students at multiple schools without traveling. We collaborate with primary care physicians to provide many services, including addressing acute issues such as the common ear ache or stomach ache, chronic disease management, medication management, well-child check-ups, sports physicals, adolescent medicine consultations, and telepsychology / telebehavioral health.​
