This event has passed.

Healthier students miss fewer days of school, are better able to focus and learn in class, and they also grow into healthier and
more productive adults. Creating healthy and supportive school environments that honor the connection between wellness and learning requires the education and health sectors to work together in new ways.

Join BPC and the Healthy Schools Campaign for a conversation highlighting the inextricable link between health and education. We will also explore promising opportunities to build national and local education and health systems that support student health and wellness.

Light refreshments will be available at 12:30 p.m. with the program starting at 12:45 p.m.
