How Teachers and Educational Staff can benefit from occupational medicine

Teachers. Administrators. Support Staff. These people are with children daily, watching out for them and caring for many of their needs. But who makes it easy for teachers to get care?  Occupational medical clinics can provide a range of services tailored to the specific needs of those working in the education field, whether onsite at school or in their office.

Here are a few ways teachers can find help from occupational medicine physicians.
