Save The Date: June 23-26, 2019 annual SBHA convention in Washington, DC

Join us in Washington, DC on June 23-26, 2019 for next year’s annual convention as we inspire the school-based health care field to redefine health for kids and teens.

As the premier national gathering for our field, the convention is a fantastic opportunity to connect with hundreds of fellow school-based health care professionals and advocates from across the nation. More than 3,000 school-based health centers nationwide are delivering integrated, patient-centered care, screenings for conditions like obesity and depression, and preventive services—all with a special focus on vulnerable children and adolescents. Convention attendees will also explore new ways health centers are serving their schools and their communities by promoting wellness and health equity.
