Upcoming webinar from the CHHS!

Upcoming webinar from the Center for Health and Health Care in Schools!

This is a reminder to register for the Center’s January 26th webinar, “Sustaining School-Community Approaches”, featuring a recently launched online tool called Partner Build Grow. The Center promotes child wellness and school success by partnering with communities to create collaborative solutions that bridge health and education so that kids are happy, healthy, and motivated to learn. Partner Build Grow uses a four-pronged approach based on promising practices to assist community coalitions in advancing and sustaining school-based child development and behavioral health objectives.

The 90-minute webinar will feature several communities that have successfully implemented cross-sector, school-connected, child health initiatives. Olga Acosta Price, Ph.D., director of CHHCS at the George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health and associate professor in the Department of Prevention and Community Health, will be moderating.  

Panelists will include: Liz Warner & Patricia Heindel, Ph.D. from the School Culture and Climate Initiative in Northern New Jersey, and Luann Kida, MA, LMSW, Director of Community Schools in Broome County, New York. Additional information about these initiatives can be found through the webinar registration link below.
