SMART® Clinics

SMART® Clinics Serving PPSD!

RIDE – in collaboration with the CVS Health Foundation, Partnership for Rhode Island, The Papitto Foundation and the Rhode Island Foundation – has brought the nationally recognized SMART® Student Health and Wellness Model to PPSD. Roger Williams Middle School and Mount Pleasant High School have been selected to open as flagship sites for the SMART® Clinics in early 2021. The Mount Pleasant and Roger Williams clinics are now open!

Each SMART® Clinic has a full-time team of approximately 5 highly qualified clinical and support staff, who are licensed to diagnose, treat, and prescribe for illness and injury at school. Providence Community Health Centers is the medical provider partner for the flagship clinics at Roger Williams and Mount Pleasant. Coming Soon: A third PPSD clinic (school to be determined).
