Significance: NY’s Title V program has important capacity to address these priorities through its School Based Health Center (SBHC) program. SBHCs serve NYS’s highest need communities and provide critical access to quality primary care for school-aged children. SBHCs are an important source of primary and preventive care services for thousands of NYS children, and have the opportunity and capacity to holistically address children’s needs. Title V staff will work with SBHCs statewide to ensure anticipatory guidance to promote proper nutrition and daily physical activity, weight status assessment, and attention to overall health promotion and chronic disease management, as part of routine primary and preventive care for children.
Data Sources and Data Issues: Data for this measure will come from the SBHC quarterly reporting system. As this is a new measure, the baseline value will be established in 2020-21, with improvement targets for subsequent years set once the baseline is available.
