NORTHBROOK, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES, June 20, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — In an effort to improve access to physical and mental well-being medical services, advance health equity for underserved populations, and address a nation-wide shortage of school counselor resources, Los Angeles Unified School District has awarded a contract to long-time software partner Kokomo24/7® to pilot telehealth services to their community members.
