Akron Children’s Hospital is making a major investment in North High School to turn it into a health and human services career academy.

In his annual “State of the Schools” address, Akron Superintendent David James said the hospital is pledging $250,000 – with another $150,000 from in-kind donations – toward the project.

Summit County Public Health and the International Community Health Center are partnering with Akron’s North High School to open a school-based health care clinic.

The school is in Akron’s North Hill neighborhood, which is home to a growing number of refugees. Many of the people in that area don’t have access to routine health services, such as check-ups.
