Slide 2

Impact of Educational and Community- Based Programs

Education level is a powerful predictor of physical/mental health and longevity. Schools can play a critical role in providing information, tools, and practical strategies to help students adopt healthy lifestyles. Community health promotion programs have improved health, reduced health disparities, and supported communities to reverse risk factor trends for obesity and chronic disease.
