I have been committed to healthcare delivered in the school setting for my entire career ( 30 years). In the late 1970's I started one of the first SBHC's in the country which still is thriving today. As health care reform approaches, the importance of the national leadership and voice that NASBHC offers are critical.

Helping secure funding, increase understanding, developing highly accountable partnership with Kaiser Permanente. My son attended a Denver high school with an active SBHC.

Increase the volume and scope of their message

Ever since I attended the webinar on school-based health centers I have been convinced of their huge impact on the health of the population. What starts out as healthy habits and practices in children carry on as they grow older, reducing healthcare costs and empowering a new generation of Americans to make informed, healthy decisions. Keep up the good work!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would increase their media presence to help spread the word. I think having a shorter name would probably help with that.

I think school-based health centers are a great way to ensure that kids have access to health services, and NASBHC does a great job advocating for these centers nationally.

They were very effective during the debates on H.R. 1214, helping individuals such as me contact my local representative.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Hope that they broaden their reach - we don't have many school-based health centers in Pennsylvania.
