School-Based Health Centers
More of Colorado’s most vulnerable children are getting health care at school than ever before.
Support from Colorado lawmakers, the federal government and the state’s health foundations has helped school-based health centers (SBHC) expand and multiply. And with ongoing funding from the legislature, school-based health is poised for more growth.
- A report from CHI analyzes the role of SBHCs in our state using data from an annual survey, which is administered by the Colorado Health Institute in collaboration with the Colorado Association for School-Based Health Care (CASBHC). The report focuses on the services SBHCs provide, who uses them and the changing landscape of school-based care in Colorado.
- An assessment from the Colorado Health Insitute identifies schools and school districts that could most benefit from the addition of a school-based health center. The project was a partnership between CHI, the Colorado Association for School-Based Health Care (CASBHC) and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.
