Speakers: Deborah Fortune, PhD, CHES®, Chelsea Chappell, MS, CHES® , Kayce Solari Williams, PhD, MPH, MS, William Potts-Datema, and Vito Borrello
After more than a year of the COVID-19 pandemic, school staff and students will be making the return to school and return to work this 2021-2022 school year. For School Health Day during National Health Education Week 2021, SOPHE invites a panel of school health experts from a national perspective to a higher education perspective to share their experiences with re-adapting to the classroom. Topics may include addressing mental health challenges, describing experiences with being back in person (and release of the new guidance), and tackling the barriers that come with reacclimating to the school environment. (This topic focuses on teaching/return to school at the K-12 level.)
1. Discuss the challenges K-12 teachers face and essential health education skills for the 2021-22 school year (1.3.2)
2. Identify the environmental factors that teachers have or must address for a safe return to the 2021-22 school year (1.3.3)
