KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Past the soaring main entrance of Wyandotte High School, and through the broad hallways of the Depression-era building, sits a warren of offices that is domain of school nurse Karen Dewberry.
“Until Wednesdays,” she said, “when BullDoc takes over.”
Taking its name from the school’s bulldog mascot, BullDoc is free clinic that serves a student body of more than 1,400 kids in grades nine through 12. Now in its second year, BullDoc is a partnership between the University of Kansas Medical Center and the Kansas City, Kan., school district.
