Members of the ASHA Physician Section and the AAP
Council on School Health have worked together
to develop a list of important school health papers
published in 2009.
The top papers for 2009 addressed school health policies, and four components of the coordinated school health program - health services, mental health, physical activity,
and nutrition. The studies covered students in elementary
and secondary schools, and include those with
chronic conditions and other special needs.
