Addressing Food Insecurity in SBHCs, a Learning Community
SBHA and Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry will be launching a second phase of grant funding to support food access in school-based health centers (SBHCs). Funding will run from July 2023 to September 2024. Proposed projects should represent at least 10 SBHCs. This activity will enable integrated school-based health center teams to come together to work on addressing food insecurity through various community-based programs.
There is an opportunity to earn a maximum of 6 CME/CE hours - 3 credits for the November 2023 session and 1.5 credits each for the December 2023 and March 2024 sessions. Please register only if you participated in at least one of these sessions and intend to claim credits.
