On Thursday, the School-Community Health of Michigan delivered close to 150 sets of flowers to legislators with “Get Well Soon” cards inside. Inside of the card reads, “Not Sick? We Know”, and goes on to explain lack of health care can keep kids out of the classroom.
The flowers are being used as an unique, introductory education piece for our legislators to educate them about the benefits of our school-based health centers. Over the next few weeks, SCHA-MI will host multiple advocacy events with legislators including a “coffee and donuts” presentation, School-Based Health Center Awareness Month, and Advocacy Day.
