The Effingham County School District has partnered with Effingham Health System so families can participate in their innovative medical program, where parents may opt-in to use telemedicine to diagnose and treat their sick children while in school. Effingham Health TELEMED will make healthcare for children more convenient and accessible, avoid delays in treatment, and enhance learning by decreasing absenteeism. Parents may enroll at the beginning of the school year, or opt-in at any point during the year.
