Creating the Well Generation.
We all know the score. Kids across America have poor health habits and health education is an under-funded mandate across the board. Our youth face a number of challenges ranging from childhood obesity to tobacco, alcohol and other drug use.
That deficit is reaching into the future and affecting the long-term success of our families, our workforce, our economy, and our nation.
Hospitals are natural partners for schools in responding to this threat. True to their missions of improving the health of the communities they serve, many hospitals are finding creative ways to support consistent nutrition and health education in schools.

Partnering with HealthTeacher
Everyone wins when it's about our youth.
A sustainable health education program has powerful, far-reaching advantages.
Often school districts are one of largest employers in any community.
By engaging with teachers, administrators, and support staff you have the opportunity to
communicate your support of their schools and the children they serve.
This builds a base of advocates for your own mission.
It's soon apparent that you are fully engaged in your community when you step forward to address local issues.
As an added bonus, your involvement is reportable as a community benefit operation (schedule H, form 990).
Let's face it: As leaders, we are called to use the skills, tools, and knowledge afforded to us to make our communities better.
More than 20,000 teachers across the country understand that and have chosen HealthTeacher as their core health curriculum.
