Albany- Every student gets sick at school some time.

Now high school students in Dougherty County will have someone to go to when that happens. Beginning this year, Phoebe Putney is staffing nurses in all four high schools and the alternative school. The program will provide medical care and health education to more than 4,000 high school students.

"The continuity of care is absolutely essential because we have an opportunity to follow that child that does have long-term health problems," said Ri Lamb, nurse manager. "We've got kids that are diabetic. We've got kids that are asthmatic."

Phoebe already staffs nurses in the middle schools. The high school nurses should be in place by the end of October.
