November SBHC Community of Practice Call

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.
