2013-14 School-Based Health Center Census The School-Based Health Alliance has launched the 2013-14 School-Based Health Center Census! Data about your health center will help us track how we are at the forefront of providing high-quality, comprehensive health care to children and adolescents in schools.
If you complete the census during our initial summer push (July 1- August 15), you will be entered into a raffle to win a $100 gift card. Finish the census within 10 days of starting, and your name will be entered into the raffle twice. If you have questions, please contact us at email@example.com.
New Directions for School-Based Health The School-Based Health Alliance is pleased to partner with the CVS Caremark Charitable Trust to create the next generation of school-based health centers (SBHCs). The New Directions for School-Based Health Grant—funded by CVS Caremark Charitable Trust and administered by the School-Based Health Alliance—will build the capacity of the school-based health care field to become integrated and active participants in the larger health care ecosystem through policy and practice solutions.
School-Based Health Alliance President Steps Down, Acting President Named
Linda Juszczak announced on March 25 that she will step down from her leadership role with the School-Based Health Alliance to take medical leave. As a member of the founding Board of Directors, and more recently in her role as President, Linda has guided the School-Based Health Alliance through an unprecedented period of growth and change. She has led the organization through rebranding; forged new programmatic partnerships with corporate, philanthropic, and government entities; and worked diligently to secure the first federally-appropriated source of funding for school-based health centers through the Affordable Care Act.
The Board of Directors has tasked Vice President of Policy and Government Affairs John Schlitt to serve as the Acting President of the organization effective immediately. John served as the first CEO of the School-Based Health Alliance from 1997 to 2008. He returned to the Alliance in 2011 to direct the organization’s policy and advocacy efforts. We are confident that his leadership and expertise will guide us through this interim period, and we remain committed to our mission of strengthening and advocating for the school-based health care field.
TJ Cosgrove, Chair School-Based Health Alliance Board of Directors
