Schools play an integral role in helping to shape the health and wellness of children and youth in Maricopa County. Public Health provides technical assistance and training to school personnel and helps keep school health providers informed about current health requirements, infectious disease issues, and resources available to support staff, student and family wellness.

Other ways Public Health supports Schools and their communities, include:

  • Creating local school wellness policies and programs;
  • Providing free dental screenings and sealants at eligible schools;
  • Training informed, empowered Parent Ambassadors; and
  • Equipping teens with healthy life skills

Together, we can help ensure students are healthy, ready to learn, and prepared to make healthy lifelong choices. You can learn more about the technical assistance, programs, and services we offer through the links below. Contact us for any questions, and we'll get in touch.
