Join Oregon School-Based Health Care Network and Oregon School Nurses Association for Health and Education Conference

Oregon is taking great strides to address both healthcare transformation and education reform at the same time. Each of these statewide initiatives can help promote the health and academic success of children and youth across the state.

Student health affects test scores, attendance, classroom behavior, grades and graduation rates. Evidence shows that there is a deep connection between students’ health and educational achievement. Additionally, students who struggle in school also tend to be the students who have health problems; and children and youth who are uninsured are more likely to suffer from health problems.

In order to address these critical issues, the Oregon School-Based Health Care Network and the Oregon School Nurses Association are hosting a conference called “Transformation: The Power of School Health” on Friday, October 12, 2012 at Milwaukie High School. Oregon’s education and health providers and school health advocates are invited to attend this exciting daylong event. For more information, please visit conference site www.osbhcn.org/conference or call Aimee Adelmann, OSBHCN Community Relations Coordinator, at (503) 813-6400.
