When children have access to health care, they do better in school. And when children improve in school, their potential for success in life improves. That’s why the Show-Me School-Based Health Alliance (The Alliance) is partnering with schools and health providers throughout Missouri to advance and advocate for school-based health care programs. This approach brings top-quality health services to the place where children spend their time: their schools. As the voice for school-based health in Missouri, the Show-Me School-Based Health Alliance of Missouri is redefining health for kids and teens throughout the state.
We support communities in building and sustaining quality school-based health programs.
Every child and youth in Missouri has an equal opportunity to succeed by assuring access to high quality health care.

Missouri School-Based Health Updates
COVID-19 is currently at the forefront of our school-based health community’s thinking and planning. We’ve collected key resources for school districts and school-based health program providers and will continue to update in the coming days and weeks. We’ve also compiled key resources to support school re-entry and reopening planning. The Alliance extends their gratitude to all of our educators, healthcare providers, and other community organizations who are working to keep Missouri children healthy and well during this time.
The Show-Me School-Based Health Alliance of Missouri (MOSBHA) is offering 9 mini-grants of $5,000 each to be used for the direct costs associated with planning, implementing, or sustaining a school-based health (SBH) program. This opportunity, made available through the generosity of Express Scripts Foundation, aims to support healthcare providers and/or school districts who are actively planning or providing SBH in Missouri.
