ALAMEDA COUNTY HEALTH CARE
Linking health, education, and communities to change lives and achieve equity...
The Center for Healthy Schools and Communities is a department of Health Care Services Agency, Alameda County's local health authority. Since 1996, we have worked with schools, public agencies, community-based organizations, youth, families, and policymakers to implement school health strategies that support children's health, well-being, and academic success.
We recognize the inseparable link between health and education – that fair, just, and equitable conditions for health and learning are critical to ensure that every child is healthy and able to learn.
All youth graduate high school healthy and ready for college and career.
We foster the academic success, health, and well-being of Alameda County youth by building universal access to high-quality supports and opportunities in schools and neighborhoods. We value empowering families and youth, growing the capacity of communities to affect change, and building strategic partnerships that link health and education institutions to achieve equity.
