New NACDD Publication Highlighting Local Health Department and School Partnerships

NACDD released the new publication “Local Health Department and School District Partnerships: Working Together to Build Healthier Schools” this month. This publication highlights the exemplary partnerships of the Northern Kentucky Health Department and the Dakota County Public Health Department with local school districts and schools in their jurisdictions. These partnerships are strong examples of the important role that local health departments play in supporting schools that are implementing the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model. They show how schools can leverage support from community agencies to address components of the WSCC model and how local health departments can strategically engage with schools as a key community partner.
