Neighborcare Health Presents is a series of community conversations that bring together industry experts, policy makers, partners, and community members to discuss the impact health care has on the social issues facing our community.
This year’s topic is focused on school-based health centers (SBHC) and how providing care inside schools can better serve students and increase graduation rates. Speakers will address current funding models, discuss health outcomes, and more broadly address why school-based health centers are important to our community.
Who should attend?
This forum will cover information, strategy, data, and patient stories from experts who understand the important role school-based health centers play in closing the opportunity gap and improving health outcomes for children. Policy makers, partners, and community members are encouraged to attend to learn how we can work together to provide better care in our schools to make our community healthier and stronger.

Consent & Confidentiality in School-Based Health Care
Washington SBHC Community of Practice Call
When: Wed, November 13, 9:00-10:30am
With a number of new school-based health centers opening across the state this fall, and questions rolling in about how to navigate consent and confidentiality, we thought it would be helpful and timely to revisit this topic in a community of practice call.
We will lay the foundation with an overview presentation and allow plenty of time for Q&A.
If you’d like to join the conversation, please email Sandy Lennon, and you will receive a calendar invite with call-in details.

Today the Washington School-Based Health Alliance hosted a school-based health center (SBHC) community of practice call on the topic “Tips & Tricks for SBHC Outreach & Student Enrollment.” A recording of the call is posted here.
Representatives from three SBHC sponsors in WA–including International Community Health Services (ICHS), Neighborcare Health, and Jefferson County Public Health–shared how they do SBHC outreach, enroll students, and build relationships with the entire school community throughout the school year to reach students with their services and support.
