School-Based Health Center Preconference


School-based health care has come a long way since we first offered a preconference session specifically designed for primary care, behavioral health and administrative staff working day-to-day in school-based health centers statewide. Rapid changes in health care pose special challenges for SBHCs and the need to remain flexible and creative is important. The SBHC preconference is an excellent opportunity to network and meet with colleagues, share stories and provide feedback to the Office of School and Adolescent Health (OSAH) about opportunities and challenges.
