Education & Health Care: A New Partnership

To succeed in school, children must have their basic health care needs addressed.  Children with asthma, vision and hearing problems, poor nutrition, or other health problems have greater obstacles to school success.  Children’s Health Fund is working with educational professionals, policymakers, and school administrators to give every child a chance to be healthy and ready to learn.
