On Wednesday February 6, Aryka Chapman, DHPE's School Health Programs manager, and members of the Student Health Advocacy Coalition (SHAC) met with Dr David Esquith, Director of the Office of Safe and Healthy Students at the US Department of Education. The group discussed the role of the Office in promoting health and physical education in schools, student related health matters in the National Prevention Strategy and how SHAC can be supportive of the work the Office is doing. Dr Esquith shared information on successful strategies he has seen across the country and asked the group to support initiatives in President Obama's "Now Is The Time" proposal that would bring more resources to schools to promote mental health and expand the use of Positive Behavior Interventions and Support programs.
