Advocating for school health education is essential for sustaining programs and addressing current challenges. The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of program advocacy as practiced by health teachers in their school and/or district. Using mixed methods, collected data included interviews with health teachers throughout Maine as well as survey data collected from site administrators of those teachers. Health teachers generally felt supported by administration. A recommendation for the future includes providing regional opportunities for teachers to network and share resources.
