Viking Wellness Center
The Crawford AuSable School District, in partnership with District Health Department #10, recently received grant funding from the Michigan Department of Education and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services to open our Viking Wellness Center, one of 100 adolescent health centers in Michigan.
Location and Hours
Housed in Room C309 of GHS, the Viking Wellness Center is open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. for CASD students ages 10-21.
The purpose of a school-based health center is to provide easy access to physical and mental health services and to reduce the time that our students are out of school for appointments, injuries and illnesses. The VWC is unique because students will be seen at the clinic regardless of their insurance status or ability to pay for services.

2017-2018 sports physicals available
The Viking Wellness Center is offering sports physicals. Please come in or call to schedule an appointment: (989) 710-5050 or (989) 344-3540.
These are comprehensive physicals, also known as well-child checks. A visit usually takes 45 minutes and includes an exam, a discussion on risk behaviors, immunizations and sports participation clearance (if needed for the upcoming school year).
A parent consent form is required, as well as the MHSAA sports physical form, which we have on-site. Students need to have a parent present if no consent is on file.
We accept all insurances; most insurances cover one physical per year. We accept what the insurances pay as payment in full. For those without insurance, we have a sliding fee scale (based on the student’s income) that slides to zero dollars if you are unable to make a donation. No one will be denied services based on inability to pay. We can also help families enroll in Medicaid.
Don’t wait until it is too late! Get it done now!
