Chronic Absenteeism: What Are We Missing?

October 11, 2016 2:00 pm Eastern Time

Chronic student absenteeism is an important and often overlooked health issue facing schools and communities. Illness and poor health outcomes are leading factors driving chronic absenteeism, and students that are chronically absent from school suffer significant academic loses that can negatively impact lifelong health. This webinar explained why chronic absenteeism is of interest to health funders, how philanthropy and federal agencies are tackling the issue, and how foundations and corporate giving programs can become involved in driving solutions. Speakers included: Hedy Chang of Attendance Works, Susan Dawson of E3 Alliance, Joaquin Tamayo of the U.S. Department of Education, and Madge Vasquez of St. David's Foundation.
