School Health in the New Decade

Limitless Possibilities:
School Health in the Next Decade
What is the future of school health? That question can’t be answered by just one of us – by one health educator, one school nurse, one principal, one counselor or one physical education teacher. At ASHA’s 85th annual conference, we will explore this question together, immersing ourselves in the possibilities, setting the course for a future where all students have the support they need to be healthy and ready to learn, not just while they are in school, but for a lifetime.

The mission of the American School Health Association is to build the capacity of its members to plan, develop, coordinate, implement, evaluate, and advocate for effective school health strategies that contribute to optimal health and academic outcomes for all children and youth. At our annual conference school health professionals from all fields help us fulfill this mission explore current topics that are shared through research paper reviews, teaching technique demonstrations, workshops and general sessions.
