Jessica Weitzel, Director of Evaluation at Via Evaluation, and Assunta Ventresca, Director of Health Related Services for Buffalo Public Schools, led a roundtable discussion Friday at the American School Health Association annual conference. The presentation, Overcoming Barriers to Gathering Student Health Risk Behavior Information, provided tips for gaining community and school leadership support for survey administration, planning administration, reporting results in a meaningful way, and using results to inform policies and interventions.

A copy of the handout we created for the session is available here.
