The Massachusetts Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS) divides the state into six school health regions in Massachusetts. Each region is served by a CSHS Regional Consultant who provides consultation and technical assistance to public and private, local, and regional schools regarding the comprehensive, coordinated school health model, including statutes, regulations, the scope of required services, and coordination with prevent-based health education programs. School nurses, school administrators, service providers, community agencies, public health officials, and other agencies may contact their Regional Consultant for consultation on school health matters.
