BENEFITING: MARYLAND ASSEMBLY ON SCHOOL-BASED HEALTH CARE
School-based health care represents an essential strategy toward improving the lives of Maryland’s children and their families and optimizing their ability to become contributing members of society. School-based health care is addresses the unique needs of children and youth and increases access to medical, mental, dental and/or other health related services.
MASBHC’s mission is to promote and advance school-based health care as a mechanism to ensure that children and youth have access to quality health care services in a setting that is uniquely tailored to meet the needs of the students and the community. We work to ensure that schools and communities in Maryland have all the resources they need to provide quality health care services in order to enable each child to reach his or her full potential.
