Sullivan, Candace
Designed to help members of the education and health systems work closely together at the community, state, and national levels, these two booklets present concrete steps to ensure the well-being of all children by educating and connecting the education and health sectors. The first booklet is aimed at education professionals. After discussing the ways in which the health care system works in the public and private sectors, the booklet provides concrete suggestions for working with the health care systems in the school, district, community, and policy arena. The second booklet, aimed at health professionals, explains the organization of the education system at the local, state, and federal levels. This booklet also gives suggestions for ways to work with schools, including ways to design activities and generate state support. Each booklet provides a list of resources for supporting collaborative health and education activities in the community. (MM)
