Establishing and Managing School-Based
Health Center Facilities

School-based health centers (SBHCs) are proving to be an excellent way of creating improved community health. They are collaborations between schools and other community-based organizations, which may include hospitals, public health departments and community health centers. SBHCs are staffed by teams of physical and mental health professionals who provide a specified scope of services specific to the needs of the children, regardless of a family’s ability to pay for the services provided to a child. Services provided may include assessments, diagnosis and treatment of acute illnesses, well-child exams, mental health counseling, chronic health management, laboratory services and prescriptions.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn why the SBHC works and the positive impact one could have on your tribal community. Register today!
