Webinar – GEARING UP FOR SCHOOL HEALTH: Riding the Path to a Comprehensive School Health Program

by email from SPARK

It's hard to enjoy a safe and smooth bike ride to your destination if your tires are low, your brakes are squeaky, and your gear shift is taking the day off.  A successful comprehensive school health program (CSHP) is a little like your bicycle, it must have all components working well to achieve the ultimate goal -- healthier students! 

What's so great about healthier students?  The data are in and we can unequivocally say, "Healthy students are better learners!"  A comprehensive school health program can lead your school down the wellness path by guiding the implementation of policies, programs, and activities that improve student health - and prepare them for academic achievement.

We are honored to announce that Jessica Lawrence of Cairn Guidance will be a guest speaker for this webinar!  Jessica will share her experiences and lessons learned building successful comprehensive school health programs. Plus, we'll learn about the AMAZING bike ride she did to raise over $22,000 to support the Alliance for Healthier Generation and combat childhood obesity.
