School Linked Health Services

The School Linked Health Services (SLHS) Program, funded through Alameda County Measure A funds, is a partnership between the City Of Berkeley (CoB) and the Berkeley Unified School District (BUSD).  SLHS was created to improve health and education outcomes for K-5 students by strengthening, building and maintaining formal linkages between the CoB Public Health and BUSD.
