New Book: School-Based Health Care: Advancing Educational Success and Public Health

Posted on August 22, 2011

New Book from American Public Health Association:  “School-Based Health Care: Advancing Educational Success and Public Health”

Teddi Dineley Johnson

In the race to ensure that all children are healthy and on track to graduate from high school, school-based health centers are unsung heroes. Confirming the inextricable link between health and education, school-based health centers reduce absenteeism, improve the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and play a key role in the early identification of risky behaviors.

To capture the current knowledge on school-based health care from across the field of practitioners, researchers and policy advocates, APHA this fall will release “School-Based Health Care: Advancing Educational Success and Public Health.” Edited by Jeanita Richardson, PhD, MEd, and Terri Wright, MPH, the book addresses the practice, policy and applied research on the outcomes and impacts of school-based health care.
