The American School Health Association is a multidisciplinary organization of administrators, counselors, dietitians, nutritionists, health educators, physical educators, psychologists, school health coordinators, school nurses, school physicians, and social workers. We envision healthy students who learn and achieve in healthy environments nurtured by caring adults functioning within coordinated school and community support systems.

ASHA membership provides you with the knowledge, skills, and resources to engage and coordinate with other school health professionals.  By working together, we can accomplish more!
