Our Initiatives

For more than 20 years, the School-Based Health Alliance has been at the forefront of efforts to advance child and adolescent health. Our collaboration with national, state, and local partner organizations has yielded a multitude of resources, learning collaboratives, and initiatives that have helped to establish and enhance school-based health care as a critical component of community health.
