“School Health Corporation has been a steadfast supporter of the National Association of School Nurses and frontline school nurses for many years. This year, their matching of NASN Endowment Fund contributions made during our 2021 annual conference, supporting the Double Down for Data President's Endowment Challenge, helped NASN reach a high-water mark in Endowment fundraising,” said Laurie G. Combe, the former President of the National Association of School Nurses. “NASN greatly appreciates School Health’s investment in student health and the practice of school nursing, which will pay dividends for years to come.”
The money raised during the “Double Down for Data Challenge” will be used for research pertaining to student health and the furthering the school nursing practice, as well as the provision of scholarships for school nurses seeking to advance their education.
School Health has a long history of partnering with NASN and has made many contributions to the Endowment Fund over the years. In 2003, Rogers co-chaired the first NASN Endowment Fund Committee. Prior to this year’s matching gift, the company had donated over $60,000 to the fund itself.
“Our continued collaboration with NASN, as well as our contributions to the Endowment Fund, are just a few of the ways we can show our support and ensure the success of school nurses everywhere,” said Rogers.
