Project Healthy Schools creates online resources in response to COVID-19
While schools are closed for the rest of the academic year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Project Healthy Schools (PHS) is developing a PHS Online Resources website for students, families and teachers.
The website provides physical activity, nutrition, family engagement, screen time and mindfulness resources, as well as other health education materials and video for online education. PHS will frequently update the site during the school closure, so be sure to check the site often for new opportunities to continue learning and practicing healthy lifestyle behaviors.
Project Healthy Schools is a community-Michigan Medicine collaboration designed to reduce childhood obesity and improve the current and future health of Michigan’s youth. It is one of only a few school-based programs that have demonstrated significant and lasting improvements in health behavior and cardiovascular risk factors.
Through education and wellness activities, Project Healthy Schools enables middle school students to increase physical activity, eat healthier and understand how nutrition and activity influence their lifelong health. In addition, once implemented in a school, the program continues year after year, benefiting future generations of students.
