The Center for Health and Health Care in Schools (CHHCS), a nonpartisan policy, resource and technical assistance center, promotes children’s health and school success by advancing school-connected programs, policies, and systems. CHHCS partners with foundations, government health and education agencies, school districts, and providers across the country to support their school-connected initiatives. Located at The George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health, CHHCS applies its expertise in children’s health and education policy to build and sustain services and programs grounded in evidence of what works.  To enhance the impact of school-connected efforts, CHHCS integrates health, education, and family systems by facilitating communication and coordination among key stakeholders to drive collective action for improved health and education outcomes.
