What’s New in 2015

SBHA_20yr_Logo_LargeThe 2015 National School-Based Health Care Convention marks the 20th anniversary of the School-Based Health Alliance. This year, we’re shaking things up a bit, beginning with our workshops.

We are currently accepting abstracts for workshops in one of five exciting categories, beginning with clinical skills. We heard you in your evaluations from 2014, and we plan to provide more workshops that cover the clinical skills you need to thrive in your school-based health center (SBHC). Workshops in this track will cover important topics like obesity, asthma, mental health, adolescent relationship abuse, and more.

Another new track for 2015 is accountability. Workshops in the accountability track will explore how you can develop and improve strategies to make your SBHC more sustainable. Topics in this track could include data collection, youth engagement, or program evaluation.

Population health is another track that we are really excited about this year. Population health workshops will look beyond the SBHC’s walls, and examine how your work impacts your community. These workshops will delve into bullying, social media, school-climate, and much more.

Business is a vital track for anyone looking for new and innovative ways to keep their SBHC sustainable. This track will cover billing, marketing, productivity, and other topics to keep your SBHC operation running smoothly and efficiently.

And finally, systems is our fifth track, and will examine how SBHCs are scaling up the model and moving from demonstration to the mainstream.

We are very excited about our new tracks for 2015, and are confident we’ll receive excellent abstracts that will ensure that our 20th anniversary conference is one of the best we’ve ever held. If you’re interested in presenting, please visit our convention webpage and submit an abstract.
