The video recording of the April 16 webinar “School-Based Health Centers in the Time of COVID-19” is available.
Community Health Centers, Inc., a federally-qualified health center in Connecticut, describes their experience, telehealth strategies and best practices as they quickly pivoted to virtual care across their network of school-based health centers when schools were closed due to the pandemic. Check out the webinar recording here.
School-based health centers provide primary care, dental and behavioral health care to students nationwide. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced schools to close which may leave students without this much needed care. The Weitzman Institute and the National School-Based Health Alliance are partnering together to bring guidance and information focusing on leadership, experience, and telehealth strategies to support a virtual school-based health center model.
Free Webinar on Thursday, April 16, 12:30-1:30pm PST (3:30-4:30pm EST)

About 40 people from across Washington joined our SBHC Community of Practice call today on the topic of Consent & Confidentiality in School-Based Health Care. Thank you to our presenters Sara Rigel, Public Health–Seattle & King County School-Based Partnerships Program, and Janet Cady, Neighborcare Health!
Access here the recording of the call, or the PowerPoint slide deck with live links to resources at the end.
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.
