Making Sure Kids are Healthy Enough to Learn: Innovations in Education Law and Policy
September 26, 2:30 - 4:00 p.m. EST

Education has emerged as a social determinant of health in its own right. More highly educated individuals are healthier and tend to live longer; they also are at less risk of smoking, drug abuse, accidents and chronic diseases. Despite federal laws that guarantee all children a free appropriate public education, major inequities exist. Join us for a discussion of critical issues in public education affecting child and adolescent health, including access to school nursing services; restorative justice and school discipline reform; and laws that ensure that children don’t go hungry at school.
