School Health Services Planning Grant

We are proud of conceptualizing and advocating for legislation that funded the School Health Services Planning Grant (RFGP 4855-0), issued by the Oregon Health Authority (OHA). This funding will support up to 12 school districts or ESDs to evaluate the need for school-based health services in their respective communities and will then fund up to 6 new school-based health centers and up to 4 sites to pilot a school nursing model. Proposals are due 9/20/2019.

Oregon HPV Vaccination Week & Youth Voice

Four students and one OSBHA employee standing in front of white building wearing & holding up HPV week t-shirtsAt OSBHA, we believe youth voice is critical to healthcare programming, policy, and advocacy. We strive to center the youth voice in everything that we do, and we are actively engaging in practices that redistribute, share and build power with youth to change systems of inequity.
