80 Michigan schools to join innovative health, wellness-based Building Healthy Communities program
Eighty Michigan schools statewide, representing grades K-12, were chosen to join the Building Healthy Communities: Step Up for School Wellness program that supports children’s health by providing students, teachers and administrators with the necessary tools to create a healthier school environment. Schools were invited to apply for Building Healthy Communities: Step Up for School Wellness in August, one of the three programs under the Building Healthy Communities program. This program provides students, teachers and administrators with the training, curriculum, equipment, funds, communication tools and external coaches needed to create a healthy school environment that supports a culture of wellness. Building Healthy Communities is supported by multiple statewide organizations, including Wayne State University’s Center for Health and Community Impact and Action for Healthy Kids.
