in 1998, the book Health Is Academic: A Guide to Coordinated
School Health Programs summarizes the concept and the eight
components of CSHPs, as well as implementation issues at local,
state, and national levels.
About Health Is Academic (1999), a sequel to the book Health
Is Academic, features six workshop modules that schools and
communities can use to promote a coordinated approach to school
health programs. The modules include charts, summaries, graphics,
and overheads. They focus on getting organized, strengthening
interdisciplinary work, introducing new ideas, focusing on a specific
component, and understanding the states role.
