News 3 Now, SSM Health team up for back to school phone bank

MADISON, Wis. — If you’re a parent with a kid heading back to school, you might have a number of medical questions before your child heads back to the classroom.

That’s why News 3 Now partnered with SSM Health to organize a phone bank with local medical experts to answer those questions. A number of doctors, including a pediatrician, family medicine provider, and two mental health providers were on hand to speak with people directly about any questions or concerns they might have ahead of the new school year.
