We offer a wide variety of health programs to elementary, middle and high schools that can be tailored for individual schools and their students. Schools that have used our programs in the past have shown a vast improvement in their students’ overall health behaviors. If you are a teacher or counselor and are interested in a Doclink presentation for your students, please call Doclink Coordinator, Ashley Gelder, at (864) 512-5465 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Doclink began in 1999 when AnMed granted a group of physicians the funding to start a community outreach initiative. After much research, the physicians decided to focus on substance abuse and trauma prevention for Anderson County youth. In 2001, after only a year in operation, Doclink earned the South Carolina Medical Association’s County Medical Society Service to the Community Award, a community service award given by the doctors’ peers statewide. In 2004, Doclink received its non-profit (501-c 3) status. In 2006, we surveyed hundreds of middle and high school students about their health related habits. After much research, Doclink programs have shown to improve the overall health habits of students in our community.
In 2014, Doclink went under The AnMed Foundation.
