Looking Back at the ‘Good News’ from July 2022

It’s Just About Time to Head Back to School!

Are you ready? 

We sure are! Our team came together in Austin this month to ensure that SchoolMed is ready to close more gaps in children’s care than ever in 2022/23. We’re also excited to announce that all SchoolMed partners began receiving their Back-to-School Marketing Package this week – just in time to get the word out before the first day of class.

We hope you’re as excited for the new year as we are, and we can’t wait to share more Good News with you along the way.

SchoolMed Monthly Insight

Staying healthy is top of mind as back-to-school approaches. Here are some quick tips to keep your students healthy as they get back to class.

  • Healthcare in schools isn’t novel – it’s a movement! Check out this podcast from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) about how research shows school health services reduce absenteeism and the link between health and academic success.
  • New friends, new school, new schedule? The start of a school year can breed anxiety in students for a host of reasons. It’s important to teach them healthy coping skills to smooth the transition.
  • Choose the healthy option! Learning to eat healthier at school is as important today as it has ever been. Whether it’s educating families on their meal plan options, making sure students eat breakfast, or choosing the best options for your packed lunch, proper nourishment is vital to academic success.
  • Sleep is fundamental to health and wellness. This article can provide you with the tools you need to make sure your students are getting their zzzz’s.
