These children’s hospitals incorporate elements needed to create school environments that recognize the benefits of education and health systems working together.
Akron Children's Hospital, School Health Services provides a bridge between health and academics, working directly with the medical provider and the school to ensure that the child’s health plan is carried out during the school day and supports parents’ efforts to keep their children at school, healthy and ready to learn. School Health Services envisions the CDC’s Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child model whereby education, public health, and school health sectors come to greater alignment, integration, and collaboration to improve each child’s cognitive, physical, social, and emotional development.
The Greenville Health System School-Based Health Centers serve the most vulnerable, at-risk students and families in the community. To be effective, the staff cannot treat the students in isolation but must bridge to the community in which their patients live. The Bradshaw Institute for Community Child Health & Advocacy launched a comprehensive community health promotion initiative to enhance the optimal health, well-being and resiliency of children in our community.
