NASBHC in "The Wall Street Journal"
A recent column in "The Wall Street Journal" highlighted the important role school-based health centers (SBHCs) play in providing access to health care for kids and teens, particularly students with specialized health needs. The column also discusses the important partnership between SBHCs and school nurses.
This is the perfect opportunity to speak out and let the nation know why school-based health care is important by submitting a letter to the editor (LTE) in response to this column.
