Improving Student Health and Academic Achievement Through Nutrition, Physical Activity and the Management of Chronic Conditions in Schools (DP18-1801)

CDC Healthy Schools funds 16 state education agencies, providing them with technical assistance and developing specialized tools, recommendations, and resources to help in the work they do for school health. State grantees support the implementation and evaluation of evidenced-based strategies and activities to:

  • Prevent obesity and reduce the risk of children and adolescents developing chronic disease in adulthood.
  • Manage chronic health conditions prevalent in student populations including poor health, asthma, food allergies, seizure disorders, diabetes, other diseases, and disabilities or conditions.

This work is funded by the CDC cooperative agreement, Improving Student Health and Academic Achievement Through Nutrition, Physical Activity and the Management of Chronic Conditions in Schools (DP18-1801 Healthy Schools).
