State Affiliate of NASBHC
While MASBHC advocates on behalf of Maryland school-based health care, the National Assembly advocates for SBHCs all over the country. MASBHC is a state affiliate of the National Assembly.
NASBHC creates a formal relationship with each state affiliate which reflects the desire of both parties to build a strong national organization with a network of strong state associations representing and working on behalf of children, adolescents, their families, and school-based health care.
Building from an agreement to share in the NASBHC Board-approved mission, vision, and core values, NASBHC and State Affiliates assist each other in building a comprehensive coalition and a grassroots movement to advance a federal policy agenda supportive of school-based and school-linked health services.
NASBHC and State Affiliates bring unique assets to the relationship that makes the movement more viable, effective and sustainable in advocating for school-based health care.
