0 Comments | Posted

On January 26, 2016, the Center for Health and Health Care in Schools (CHHCS) will host a webinar that features 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. Her expertise is in the design, implementation, and evaluation of school behavioral health programs and policies.
