It's back to school time and School Based Health Centers (SBHCs) are there to help students' needs -- providing school entry physicals and sports physicals, dental cleanings, a mental health check-in, asthma visit, or nutritional counseling -- right there in school! During the summer, CASBHC has been busy preparing for Fall activities and providing resources to help SBHCs provide the very best care. We've scheduled two Fall trainings -
Current Trends in Street Drugs and Prescription Medications on October 19th in Norwich, and
Coping With An Active Shooter Situation in the School Setting on November 30th at the Capitol in Hartford. You can read more details about the trainings below.
With the start of school, CASBHC is releasing the first-ever
Guide to Connecticut School Based Dental Services
, a manual that will help schools, communities, and organizations design and operate a school based dental program. You can learn more about the manual
Read the results of the statewide SBHC Student Satisfaction Survey for the 2016-2017 school year. 98% of students rated SBHC services as Excellent or Good!
