Thank You for Bringing Smiles to Students
from the National Assembly on School-Based Health Care 

We all know that getting through school is hard enough. There are tests to pass, relationships to manage, and maybe worst of all, gym. But imagine if, on top of everything else, you were dealing with dental health issues so severe you were only able to eat apple sauce comfortably. That’s exactly what one young man had to suffer through. Luckily, his school-based health center was able to provide him with the dental care he needed to get back to focusing on his grades. Now, every time the school-based health center staff sees him in the hallway, he’s smiling.

Your support is putting the smile back on the faces of students like the young man at the Woodlawn health center. Thank you for making our first Global Giving campaign such a monumental success! Your support has helped:

  • Develop a Youth Track for our 2012 National Convention to hone the leadership capabilities of youth involved in school-based health care
  • Reach thousands of people by sharing our stories for National School-Based Health Care Awareness Month 
  • Sustain school-based health centers in communities across the country by linking them valuable resources and funding opportunities
  • Educate school health practitioners about the opportunities presented in health reform

None of this would be possible without you! We’re ecstatic to have such a devoted group of supporters, and we’re thrilled to join you as a member of the Global Giving community. Together, we’ll make sure that all children and adolescents are healthy and achieving at their fullest potential.

Stay tuned for more stories and updates from SBHC Awareness Month and beyond  and thank you for supporting school-based health!
