Event Overview: The West Virginia Primary Care Association invites you to our second annual School-Based Health Conference, which has been themed,  "WV School-Based Health Centers - Where Community and Health Connect: Serving the Whole Child". Held on June 13th at The Charleston Coliseum and Convention Center in Charleston, WV.  This all-day event will focus on serving the whole child by bringing together community health center professionals and stakeholders to share best practices on student health and well-being. Topics will include building partnerships at the state level, the integration of primary and oral healthcare, ending the youth vaping epidemic, inclusivity in the School-Based setting, the why and sustainability of mobile units, telehealth in schools, youth obesity, social media and mental health, adolescent relationship abuse, and body positivity. Don't miss this opportunity to connect with peers and leadership from across West Virginia and the national community health center sector.

Goals and Objectives:

  • Identify and share innovative approaches to delivering SBH services. This will include the use of technology, engagement strategies, and creative partnerships between schools and health organizations.
  • Highlight opportunities for collaboration between schools, health organizations, and community partners to create a more comprehensive and effective approach to school-based health.
  • Foster dialogue and exchange ideas among participants that include interactive sessions, panel discussions, and networking opportunities where participants can share their experiences and learn from one another.
