Join the School-Based Health Alliance for its annual conference, “Engaging Communities, Fostering Partnerships,” June 30-July 2, 2024, at the Westin Washington, DC Downtown Hotel (formerly the Renaissance Downtown Hotel) in Washington, D.C. In addition to the keynote speakers, this conference will feature workshops with experts on a wide range of topics.

This conference is an opportunity to connect with fellow health care professionals, education professionals, and advocates across the nation. More than 3,500 school-based health centers (SBHCs) nationwide deliver integrated, patient-centered care, screening for conditions like obesity and depression, and offering preventive services—all with a special focus on children and adolescents who experience barriers to care because of their family’s income, where they live, or systemic inequities. Conference attendees will explore the innovative ways SBHCs serve their rural, urban, and suburban schools and communities by promoting wellness and health equity.

SBHA is committed to listening to youth ideas, perspectives, and voices. This year’s conference will further integrate youth and adult attendees by providing networking opportunities, increasing focus on youth presenters, and highlighting workshops related to youth development in school-based health care. This step serves as a testament to the power of youth and their ability to shape the future of our field.
