Schools play a critical role in this conversation, not only because of the expertise of school nurses and health educators, but also because of the relationships that educators and school leaders have with students and families. The more we equip communities with evidence-based information, the better the chances that students will be prepared to make safe, healthy decisions. School personnel, parents, community members, and students are invited to use and share these resources, provided by the State of Iowa.
