The Public Health Institute champions community-based health solutions, working with partners to advance policy and environmental change strategies. Schools, often centers of their communities, provide a unique opportunity to bring together multi-sector stakeholders and community members to launch local initiatives for health. Schools also play a critical role in kids' health by feeding students, providing opportunities for physical activity, and contributing to a lifetime of healthy habits. PHI experts have experience with: launching and evaluating school-based health centers; school-wide policies to bring healthy, local food into the cafeteria; shared use agreements; safe routes to school programs; and, school-based sex education and healthy relationship courses.
