School-based health centers (SBHCs) continue to provide essential health care services to children and families in underserved neighborhoods across the country. Preliminary studies show that students who use SBHCs have better attendance rates as well as higher rates of academic achievement and attachment to the learning environment. Few studies, however, detail the programs that create better learning environments and higher attendance rates. The present study provides detailed information about programming in New York City SBHCs. Centers were asked to complete an online survey about the specific programming offered at each school. Recommendations for future research, including program evaluations, are offered.
