Healthy Schools – Healthy Children – Healthy Communities

The Healthy School Communities National Forum will provide the tools, evidence and resources to help you make healthy schools a priority goal in your community. Delegates can expect:

  • Dynamic presentations offering the latest in school health research, evaluation and emerging trends;
  • Interactive workshops, learning and mentoring sessions on successful policy and program initiatives;
  • Brainstorming sessions that allow delegates to collaborate on strategic activities for the continued growth of healthy school communities;
  • Opportunities to broaden your network, stimulate action and strengthen a National community of practice.

It takes a community to create the healthy environment children require to be successful learners. Join us November 2 and 3 to experience a national community of practice committed to improving student achievement, health and well-being.

Regular registration rates end September 28th
