The federal health care law provides $200 million to improve health services at schools. Students at a California high school visit a campus clinic to get information about sex education and for medical issues related to poor housing. "School based health centers are really the future," said Jim Mangia, CEO of St. John's Well Child and Family Center clinic system, which received a $500,000 grant to start three new clinics. "And I think that they say a lot about what needs to be surrounding a school in order to make sure that kids can learn and that they can be healthy."
