Access to Comprehensive School-Based Health Services for Children and Youth, 1999.
Access, Win-Fall 1999
This document is comprised of the three 1999 issues of the newsletter "Access," presenting information on public policy and research of interest to school-based health programs (SBHC) for children and youth. The Winter 1999 issue focuses on how SBHCs can help teachers do their jobs better by allowing them to concentrate their energies on teaching rather than on their students' health concerns, and presents findings of the 1998 state survey of SBHCs. Also included is information on the "Making the Grade" Web site. The Summer 1999 issue describes the development of SBHC state associations and provides contact information, details the growth of an SBHC coalition in Illinois, and provides additional findings from the 1998 state survey of SBHCs. The Fall 1999 issue discusses the current role of SBHCs as enrollers for the State Child Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and their possible role as CHIP providers. This issue also lists Web sites of interest, and provides findings from the 1998 survey of SBHCs regarding school-based health centers. (KB)
