Children: School and Community Programs

Make a gift to public health today


When kids learn positive health habits, the knowledge can last a lifetime and spread among the extended family! Our programs for children harness the passion of our public health students to teach children about diet and exercise and wellness. They forge connections and relationships that build healthier communities, and they provide training for future public health leaders. Our children’s programs touch so many lives, and we’re so thankful to our donors who helped establish them. We hope you’ll support the effort to transform health awareness into health practice for the next generation.
