Webinar in Child Health:

Schools and Communities - Partners for Promoting Health

Wednesday, September 14th from 12:00 - 1:00 PM  


Join people who are working in and with schools as we examine the elements of effective working relationships between schools and other community institutions and groups interested in health promotion. As vehicles for reaching almost every American, schools seem natural places to engage in population-wide health promotion efforts, yet public and community health practitioners often find it hard to get cooperation form school officials. Approaches that create win-win outcomes for both health and education can lead to successful health promotion partnerships. (Continuing Education: 1 hour)
