Back-2-School Health Clinics

The Back-2-School Coalition of Hillsborough County (B2SCHC) encourages early immunization practices, promotes healthy lifestyle choices, increases parental engagement, and provides information regarding support services to assist uninsured or under-insured students and families new to Hillsborough County.
The B2SCHC members include doctors and nurses from Tampa Bay area hospitals, University pharmaceutical doctors & medical professionals, private medical doctors, corporate partners, and charity organizations.

Senior Level representatives from each of our collaborative partners meet once a month beginning in January through September for strategic planning, logistical forecasting, medical team(s) confirmation, and professional continuation training to host our annual Back-2-School Health Clinics.

While Project LINK, Inc is the administrative arm for the Back To School Coalition of Hillsborough County, our strategic partnerships with healthcare and medical professionals continuously provide new strategies and systems that have a substantial impact on the families we serve year after year.

At the B2SCHC, we put ideas into action to improve the lives of children. We work at the intersection of research, policy, and community engagement to advocate on behalf of children, especially those from underserved communities.


From improving health care to expanding digital health tools and opportunities, our work is to always look for solutions that will make a difference in the lives of children in Tampa Bay. Our unique partnership model harnesses the power of collaboration to break down silos and reinvent systems for delivering quality care and opportunity for children and their families.

The last two years of the COVID-19 pandemic have done nothing less than lay bare the needs of children and their families and expose the gaps in how various social sector agencies—education, mental health, health, social services, and early development and education—are working together to achieve a healthy Tampa Bay.

Our leadership in children’s health advocacy has positioned us as a trusted resource for thought leaders and policymakers on both sides of the aisle.
