National efforts to connect child health with educational success

 The Healthy School Campaign and Trust for America’s Health (TFAH)  last week launched  the National Collaborative on Education and Health. The Collaborative will bring together advocates, policymakers, school stakeholders and funders to work towards more fully integrating education and health. This topic mirrors BPS Health Services goal of more closely linking the educational and medical homes.  Barbara Ferrer, from Boston Public Health Commission is on the collaborative’s   national steering committee.
