Join us for a day of learning, networking, and joining forces to advance school-based health care in Washington state.
As we know, healthy kids learn better. School-based health care provides a crucial link between health and education, improving outcomes for students in both areas. There are over 45 school-based health centers (SBHCs) in Washington and rapidly-growing interest in the model as a way to reach kids where they are, close care gaps, provide early intervention, and help students stay healthy, in class and ready to learn.
The Student Health Summit 2019 is relevant to families, educators, healthcare providers, SBHC staff, social service organizations, policymakers, funders and other stakeholders invested in the health and education of youth in Washington. The conference agenda is being designed to incorporate the voice of our youth and include topics in:
- The state of our state: student health, SBHC, policy & advocacy landscape in Washington
- SBHC basics: models, planning, start-up & effective school-SBHC partnerships
- Providing school-based physical & oral health care
- Providing school-based behavioral health care
- SBHC administration & policy
Agenda details will be posted here as they become available.
Continuing education credits will be made available, pending approval.
Many thanks to our title event sponsor, Kaiser Permanente Washington!
