We’re very excited to announce the release of The Quick & Easy Guide to School Wellness, a multi-media how-to guide filled with comprehensive information, practical advice, tools and resources to help you take action.
The guide includes sections on improving food available at school; increasing physical activity; teaching good nutrition; encouraging staff wellness; and engaging parents. It also includes case studies and advice for long-term success.
HSC launched the guide with School Health Corp. to rave reviews two weeks ago at the National Association of School Nurses annual conference in Nashville, where nearly 500 school nurses picked up their copy of the guide.
With the Quick & Easy Guide, developing and adopting a school wellness program doesn’t have to be overwhelming: It is a process that can be accomplished in steps or phases, with positive results at each stage.
