Chronic Disease Management

Children and adolescents in the United States spend many hours in school; therefore, those students who have chronic health conditions might have daily challenges with managing their condition.  Examples of chronic health conditions are asthmadiabetesfood allergiespoor oral healthepilepsy, and other seizure disorders. Research shows that some students with chronic health conditions may miss school more often than others. Eventually this may have an impact on academic performance. Schools can help students with chronic health conditions by providing services through a school nurse or at a school-based health center. School health services staff can help students stay at school, safely and ready to learn.
