Wednesday, November 14th at 2:00 PM ET

In this webinar, Health Equity Works will introduce the Healthy Schools Toolkit, a research-informed tool that is grounded in the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model and that helps education leaders to understand:

· The people who are key influencers and could be recruited to inspire others to integrate health and well-being into their school practices

· The existing systems in their schools that help or hinder student health, well-being, and academic success

· The aspirational messages about healthy schools that can be used to spark interest and buy-in throughout the school community

Join Dr. Jason Purnell of Health Equity Works for a webinar on Thursday, November 14 from 2:00 to 3:00 pm ET to learn more about how you can use the Healthy Schools Toolkit to leverage your people, systems, and messages to support your students’ learning and development.
