The Center for Health and Health Care in Schools hosts this webinar that features a recently launched online tool called Partner Build Grow. The Center promotes child wellness and school success by partnering with communities to create collaborative solutions that bridge health and education so that kids are happy, healthy, and motivated to learn. Partner Build Grow uses a four-pronged approach based on best practices to be used as a tool to assist community coalitions in advancing and sustaining school-based child development and behavioral health objectives.
The 90-minute webinar will feature several communities that have successfully implemented cross-sector, school-connected, child health initiatives. Olga Acosta Price, PhD, director of CHHCS at the George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health and associate professor in the Department of Prevention and Community Health, will be moderating. Her expertise is in the design, implementation and evaluation of school behavioral health programs and policies addressing prevention, early intervention, and evidence-based treatment.
