Visit Our Virtual Healthy School (VHS)
The VHS is designed for K-12 school staff, staff in state and local departments of health or education, and agencies who have an interest in meeting the needs of the whole child. Those needs include providing students with opportunities to improve their dietary and physical activity behaviors and manage their chronic health conditions (for example, asthma, diabetes, and epilepsy). Parents and community members can also benefit from the VHS because of their powerful role in supporting children’s health and learning and ability to participate on school health teams.
