Welcome to the Center for School Health. Founded in 2010, the center seeks to promote PreK-12 schools as epicenters for the improvement of youth health. Center faculty and research associates work collaboratively with schools to design, implement and research healthy school initiatives focusing on physical activity, healthy eating and nutrition, and comprehensive, school-wide approaches to wellness education and promotion.

Please take a few minutes to find out more about our center. You'll quickly learn that we're a fast-paced, productive, and multi-disciplinary team of scholars and educators working hard to understand how PreK-12 schools can facilitate the health and welfare of all children.
