Since its formation in 1993, the School-based Health Care Special Interest Group has had continuous growth, and currently has more than 100 members. The SIG publishes information regularly via the NAPNAP School-based Health Care SIG community and maintains a clearinghouse of school-based health care information. The School-based Health Care SIG collaborates with organizations such as the American Academy of Pediatrics, National Assembly on School-Based Health Care, National Nursing Coalition for School Health and the National Association of School Nurses. Periodically, resources on school-based health care and other pertinent topics are provided to the members of the SIG.
