PARTNERS

Grant recipients have actively engaged local partners in promoting health literacy and providing students with access to information and community resources.  Partners have included local doctors, nurses, dentists, hospitals, nutritionists, and other health care agencies.   Activities have included providing health care screenings, CPR courses, exercise classes, organizing heath fairs, and field trips to hospitals, health centers, grocery stores, fires stations and county agencies.  Many programs have had guest presenters from a wide range of organizations talk to their classes.
