SBHA Virtual Opportunities

The National School-Based Health Alliance and state affiliates are offering a number of great, virtual learning opportunities in the near future. Check out their website for more information and to get on their mailing list. Below is a selection of upcoming opportunities in Spring 2020.

School-Based Health Center (SBHC) COVID-19 Listening and Learning Sessions

The School-Based Health Alliance invites SBHC sponsor organizations and administrators and SBHC primary care and behavioral health clinicians to join their peers from across the nation to discuss, share, and learn from each other on how SBHCs are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. While the Alliance does not have all the answers, we want to provide support to SBHCs by connecting like individuals and facilitating peer-to-peer listening and learning opportunities.

Each week, April 28th through May 21st, we will host two listening and learning sessions. We will announce the topic and registration link for each week’s session a week ahead of time. The May 19th and 21st sessions will focus on mental health.

We will record each session and post the archives on our website.

REGISTER HERE: We invite SBHC sponsors/administrators and SBHC primary care and behavioral health clinicians to register for next week’s virtual listening and learning opportunities by clicking on their respective link below:
