Partnering with hundreds of schools each year, the Weller Center connects with young people to change behaviors and help them develop life-long healthy habits that will prevent chronic disease, reduce violence and improve the overall health, safety and well-being of children and families in our communities. Although some parents have difficulty attending evening meetings, school districts are finding other ways to reach out to parents—for instance, through educational TV broadcasts with call-in capacities, Saturday morning breakfast meetings, and activities for parents and children together, organized to promote good health (a walk/run, a dance, a heart-healthy luncheon).

Since your child’s doctor knows your family, he or she can provide clear, personalized health information and advice.
