American School Health Association

The American School Health Association (ASHA) was founded in 1927 by physicians who were members of the American Public Health Association. The main focus of the ASHA is to safeguard the health of school-age children. Over the years it has evolved into a multidisciplinary organization of administrators, counselors, dentists, health educators, physical educators, school nurses, and school physicians that advocates high-quality school health instruction, health services, and a healthful school environment.

The association's stated mission "is to protect and promote the health of children and youth by supporting coordinated school health programs as a foundation for school success." As part of its mission, the ASHA publishes the Journal of School Health.
