Statements of Support 2013:
Georges Benjamin, MD, Executive Director, American Public Health Association - "We know that healthy children learn better, and that education is so vital to their health through the lifespan. Creating healthy, safe places for children to learn and grow yields a tremendous return on investment for future generations. As always, the American Public Health Association honors National Healthy Schools Day and hopes our leaders do their part - to keep children safe and promote healthy learning environments."
Thomas J. Gentzel, Executive Director, National School Boards Association - "Schools play a critical role in addressing the physical, mental, social, and environmental factors related to health and well-being that can affect student learning. The National School Boards Association and local school boards across the country are committed to developing effective policies and practices to create healthy learning environments to help position students for success in school and throughout their lifetimes. We commend the 11th annual National Healthy Schools Day as an important way to raise awareness about the need for healthy learning environments in America's schools."April 8th and all week long
