The daily challenges that many U.S. children and adolescents face when managing chronic health conditions in schools remains as a public health issue today. To address this issue, CDC has conducted research and developed strategies to aid students in completing each day at school safely, and ready to learn. The CDC Healthy Schools webpage has been updated with new resources that focus on evidence-based strategies for schools to use for the management of chronic health conditions.  These resources include the following:

  • How Schools Can Support Students with Chronic Health Conditions Research Brief,
  • Chronic Health Conditions and Academic Achievement Research Brief,
  • Managing Chronic Conditions in Schools Fact Sheet;
  • Health Insurance for Children: How Schools Can Help Fact Sheet

CDC has also published research in the Journal of School Nursing on how health and academic outcomes of students with chronic health conditions can be improved through direct access to school nursing and other health services.
