Thank You for Your Support!
Thank you for supporting the School-Based Health Alliance. We are so close to our $24,000 goal! With the end of 2013 quickly approaching, we hope you will consider us when making your year-end donations.

Our Youth Advisory Council Meets with U.S. Secretary of Education
The five members of the School-Based Health Alliance’s Youth Advisory Council travelled to Washington, DC September 26 to meet with U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, along with members of the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The Council provided the Secretary with insight into how the Affordable Care Act affects young people and offered suggestions to the administration on how they can encourage young people to enroll in the upcoming health care exchanges.
