Child and School Health

Healthy students are better learners, yet many schools are not able to deliver the conditions that support student health – conditions such as access to in-school health services, a clean and safe school building, nutritious food, and time and appropriate space for physical activities.

Delivering health services in schools is a key strategy for improving access to healthcare for children, including those in underserved populations.  Furthermore, incorporating health and wellness into schools’ culture and environment will help close the educational achievement gap and put today’s students on a path to healthy and productive lives.
