The Health Policy Institute of Ohio has released the second in its series of four policy briefs exploring the connection between health and education. Connections between Education and Health No. 2: Health Services in Schools focuses on how Ohio schools are providing health services to students and specific evidence-based policies and programs that have demonstrated both health and education benefits.
In addition to the 12-page brief, a 2-page executive summary and a summary of school health service requirements under Ohio law also are available.
HPIO released its first policy brief in the series, Connections between Education and Health, in January. The third brief will explore early learning policies and programs and is expected in August 2017. The final brief in the series, which will explore school-based prevention policies and programs that impact health and education outcomes, is expected in the fall.
Additional resources can be found on HPIO’s Intersections between Education and Health online resource page, which will be continually updated throughout 2017.
