2018 School Health Advocacy Day

Our annual School Health Advocacy Day was held Tuesday, February 6, 2018 at the Oregon State Capitol in Salem. Now in its 11th year, School Health Advocacy Day provides an opportunity for over 150 youth from across Oregon to visit the Capitol, meet their legislators, and advocate for the importance of school-based health services in their communities.

At School Health Advocacy Day, youth participants:
·         Developed and shared education about the legislative process
·         Met with legislators and advocated for the health needs of their communities
·         Built skills for community engagement and advocacy
·         Met and learned from with other youth leaders across the state
·         Promoted the importance of youth voice in access to school health services
Many thanks to our sponsors, who helped make this event possible: The EC Brown Foundation, PeaceHealth, CareOregon, Columbia Bank, OHSU, Kaiser Permanente, and CivCom.
