The meeting focused on navigating communications issues when opening a school-based health center. Topics included using digital media channels to drive awareness and engagement, building relationships with stakeholders, getting consents and developing a robust marketing plan. 

March 2021

We welcomed panelists who have started school-based health services in an urban and a rural location. They discussed topics such as how to find a medical or school partner, fundraising for construction and facility costs, and marketing and community engagement. Interact for Health associates provided an overview of a roadmap to navigate and promote SBHC development.

June 2020

The meeting shared learnings from the Medical University of South Carolina, a National Center of Telehealth Excellence, whose telehealth program serves more than 80 schools throughout the state. MUSC has designed a comprehensive process to implement a school telehealth program. The use of telehealth has exploded during the COVID-19 pandemic and will likely continue. View the webinar recording and download the presentation slides.
