School health is a growing field that reaches students where they spend a lot of time - in school! Managing health issues in schools can keep kids in good attendance standing, focused in the classroom, and playing during recess. As health staff, you play an important role in communicating any health issues a child may have with school personnel. You can also work with families and students to make sure they are screened for health barriers to learning and understand how they can manage health issues at home.
