Hallways to Health: Health and Education Collaborating to Make a Difference

Presented by: Tammy Alexander, MEd, Member Services Director, Oregon School Based Health Alliance; Mandy LeBlanc, BA, Health Education Specialist, Group Health Cooperative; Jamie Smeland, BA, Health & Wellness Coordinator, Milwaukie High School Health & Wellness Center

School Wellness is imperative to the future of our educational system. We need healthy students and teachers in order to promote optimal learning experiences and outcomes. Learn about Oregon and Washington’s experiences in a 2 year national initiative (Hallways to Health, a Thriving Schools Initiative) to demonstrate why and how schools and school-based health centers (SBHCs) work effectively together to facilitate improvements in health care and behavior among students, their families, and school staff.

At the end of the webinar, the learner will be able to:

  • Describe the Hallways to Health (H2H) initiative, key recommendations/strategies and rationale.
  • Describe two different initiatives, one in a high school and one in a middle school.
  • Identify and access pertinent tools, resources and best practices.
