Healthy Schools Summit

The Healthy Schools Summit, a national meeting of education and health leaders last fall, has led to the launching of a new nationwide initiative to combat the deterioration of child health. More than 30 organizations, including AASA, are involved.

Action for Healthy Kids Teams now have formed in nearly every state, and school leaders at the local level are encouraged to join. To learn about state teams, visit www.actionforhealthykids.org/press/index.htm.
The Action for Healthy Kids teams are responsible for supporting good nutrition and physical activity as part of a total learning environment in public schools.
