Capitol Hill School Nurse
My name is Dr. Carolyn Veglia Young or just Dr. Veglia for short.
I received my nursing degree from the University of Pennsylvania and my doctorate from the University of Minnesota. In addition to being a Licensed School Nurse, I am a Board Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. I have cared for children and families in primary care clinics, in the emergency room and now in the school setting.
I am passionate about keeping kids healthy and love working with children and their families. As a school nurse, I am dedicated to protect the health and safety of students and enhance the educational process by addressing health related barriers to learning. School health focuses on hygiene, exercise, nutrition, emotional well-being and management of chronic health conditions.
The Student Health Office provides first aid, chronic health condition management, care coordination including asthma, diabetes, behavioral health, and management of allergies and anaphylaxis.
I look forward to working collaboratively with our students, families, teachers, staff and health care providers to support and enhance our children’s educational success at Capitol Hill.
Healthy children are better learners!
