The school district has a tremendous role in community and public health, and the community has a reciprocal responsibility to appropriately support the delivery of health care in the school setting.

Jeffrey Lamont, MD, FAAP, discusses the need for community awareness of and involvement in local school districts, as well as the role of school nurses and medical advisors in bringing healthy choices to the K-12 classroom. Preventative health starts with grassroots efforts toward improving the health of children in schools—efforts which might originate in a single school, or even a single classroom, and which have the power to affect health outcomes for a lifetime.
