Four counties receive $1 million for school-based health care

The U.S. government awarded about $1 million in federal grants Thursday to four Maryland counties to improve school-based health care for students.

The money will go to Baltimore, Montgomery and Dorchester counties as well as the Choptank Community Health System on the Eastern Shore.

The state has 68 health centers in schools around the state providing routine health care services for students from low-income families.
