Student Health Summit 2019 a Success

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Student Health Summit 2019 on May 3!

Nearly 200 people from across Washington converged at the Museum of Flight for a day of learning and building community around school-based health care in our state.

The day began with opening remarks by Tim Burgess, former Seattle City Council Member and Interim Mayor, and ended with a panel of high school youth sharing their experiences and making a difference in their schools. At lunchtime we heard from a panel of policymakers and state agencies about student health in Washington and their own visions for the future of school-based health. Throughout the day there were a dozen breakout sessions on everything from school-based health center start-up to youth vaping to trauma-informed care on the ground. The day’s agenda and presentation slide decks from the breakout sessions are available on the Alliance website.

Thank you again to our event sponsors!
