MEETING HEALTH NEEDS  Through a partnership with Alivio Medical Center, Spry School has opened a health clinic to serve both Spry students and the school’s Pilsen neighborhood. The clinic opened last week in the renovated basement of Spry and will provide basic non-emergency health services, such as preventative care, physicals and district-mandated exams for students, counseling, testing and treatment for sexually-transmitted diseases, and immunizations, says registered nurse Maria Sauerzapf of Alivio, who is overseeing the clinic. Sauerzapf is also reaching out to children from nearby Telpochcalli and Saucedo elementary schools who need health services as well. State and private funding paid for the venture.
