Save the Date for 2019 School Health Advocacy Day

School Health Advocacy Day 2019 is scheduled for Thursday, February 28, 2019 at the State Capitol in Salem. Thank you to the 150+ youth from across Oregon who joined us in 2018.

Our annual School Health Advocacy Day is the only youth-driven advocacy event that supports school-based health services in Oregon. School Health Advocacy Day provides an opportunity for 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:
  • Develop and share education about the legislative process
  • Meet their legislators and advocate for the health needs of their communities
  • Build skills for community engagement and advocacy
  • Connect with other youth leaders across the state
  • Promote the importance of youth voice in access to school health services
Many thanks to the sponsors who helped make the 2018 event possible: The EC Brown Foundation, PeaceHealth, CareOregon, Columbia Bank, OHSU, Kaiser Permanente, and CivCom.
