National Assembly On School-Based Health Care - Advocacy

Advocacy

NASBHC advocates for national, state, and local policies, programs and funding that sustain, grow, and integrate school-based health care into our nation’s health care and education systems. NASBHC’s advocacy power is derived from the field – the thousands of passionate and committed school-based health care professionals, consumers and advocates across the nation who are the heart of this grassroots movement.

A 2007 survey, conducted on behalf of The W.K. Kellogg Foundation, published by Lake Research Partners, indicated that 71% of voters support the idea of providing health care in schools. This support crosses racial and partisan lines.
