February 1, 2016



The Center for Health and Health Care in Schools (CHHCS) hosted a webinar featuring the online tool, Partner Build Grow.  The 90-minute webinar featured several communities that have successfully implemented cross-sector, school-connected, child health initiatives. Olga Acosta Price, Ph.D., director of CHHCS at the George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health and associate professor in the Department of Prevention and Community Health, moderated. Her expertise is in the design, implementation, and evaluation of school behavioral health programs and policies addressing prevention, early intervention, and evidence-based treatment.

The Initiative provides school districts in Northern NJ with the means to improve their culture, climate and health resulting in an environment where children can thrive socially, emotionally, physically, and academically, and where students, the family, and the wider community are engaged in the schools.
