SBHCs: A Growing Trend

Community members open an SBHC in Stanislaus County.

We are excited to report that there are now 200 school-based health centers (SBHCs) in California, up from 183 just one year ago. As a result of this growth 13,500 more children now have access to health care at school! With another 45 sites in the works, we expect to see these numbers continue to grow. This growth is a credit to school districts, health care providers and other school health advocates who know that supporting healthy children is a smart investment. There is still much more to do, but we celebrate this significant milestone.
