Healthy Living Schools

Certification is offered to schools which teach students about healthy living factors which decrease their risk for cancer. Our team of Prevention Educational Leaders works with school districts to help children (and their families) understand that what they eat, their level of activity, whether they smoke, and if they protect themselves from the sun all have an impact on their health and well being.
