education + health = success

The Maryland Assembly is an advocacy organization that promotes school-based health care as a means to advance the belief that all Maryland children and youth have a basic fundamental right to access and receive comprehensive, quality health care.

School-based health care represents an essential strategy toward improving the lives of Maryland’s children and their families and optimizing their ability to become contributing members of society. School-based health care addresses the unique needs of children and youth and increases access to medical, mental, dental and/or other health related services.

MASBHC’s biggest initiatives include our participation in Hallways to Health through the School Based Health Alliance, our annual conference, and our advocacy work.
