ABOUT US

Our work

The Ohio School-Based Health Alliance (“Ohio Alliance”) is the only nonpartisan, statewide organization created to advance and support the sustainability and expansion of school-based health care to reduce disparities and improve health and education outcomes for Ohio’s students, their families, and communities. Since 2010, the Ohio Alliance has been designated as the state affiliate of the national School-Based Health Alliance.

The Ohio Alliance was relaunched in 2021 as a fiscally sponsored initiative of Health Impact Ohio, a Regional Healthcare Improvement Collaborative based in Columbus, Ohio.
