Abstract:
Mississippi leads the nation in the rates of obesity, hypertension, and diabetes and is second in the United States in poverty rate for ages 18 and under. The Mississippi Delta exceeds the national rate for underserved populations, health professional shortage areas, uninsured children, infant mortality, STDs, teen pregnancy and poor oral health. These startling statistics emphasize the need for creative and innovative solutions to ameliorate the health problems plaguing the children of Mississippi. The purpose of the project is to expand the University Of Mississippi Medical Center's School Of Nursing's (UMMCSON) present nurse managed centers (NMC) by the addition of new inter-professional mobile sites serving 1100 children in the South Delta School district (SDSD) and Ripley-Blackwell Head Start (RBHS)to increase access to primary, oral health care services and education for school aged children who are medically underserved, economically deprived and where health disparity is ubiquitous. This program is a unique affiliation amongst the five schools of UMMC, Sisters of Mercy, SDSD and RBHS. Outcome objectives: 1) Expand the current nurse managed centers in Mississippi with the establishment of a new inter-professional mobile service site in the South Delta School District (SDSD) to reduce health disparity and improve access to primary and oral healthcare in medically underserved communities in Sharkey - Issaquena Counties. 2) Establish a medical home during the first year for 900 of the 1100 school-aged youth who attend SDSD and RBHS. 3)  Develop and expand the community/rural clinical practice sites from 4 to 5 to provide structured learning experiences for nursing, medical, dental, and pharmacy students in a medically underserved population.  4) Create a model for mobile nurse managed inter-professional school based clinics that can be replicated globally.  Targeted Clients are minority children from economically disadvantaged backgrounds enrolled in (4) Rural Public Schools in the Mississippi Delta.
