Welcome to the NEW NC Prevention Partners Blog for Healthy Schools. We'll be using this space to talk about free, evidence-based resources to help schools promote good nutrition, physical activity, and cultures of wellness for both staff and students across North Carolina. If this is your first time here, take a moment to get to know us:
The Zone Health program helps schools improve their nutrition and physical activity environments to give students, faculty and staff more opportunities to eat healthy food, be physically active and improve their overall health.
WorkHealthy AmericaSM is a one-stop wellness shop, with all the tools you need to help your teachers and staff lead healthier and more productive lives.
We also developed the NC School Health Connection in collaboration with NC Healthy Schools. The mission of the NC School Health Connection (NCSHC) is to identify and promote effective childhood obesity prevention programs in North Carolina public schools to empower key stakeholders and encourage collaboration among those seeking to improve student health and academic achievement. Check if your school made the map!
We welcome comments and suggestions on all of our blog posts, and we'd love to know what is most helpful for you!
