Healthy Lifestyles

Dear Healthy Lifestyles Chair,

When we are committed to student’s health, we are committed to their future. The Healthy Lifestyles Chair helps ensure healthy opportunities are presented and available in a PTA’s school. Developing relationships with administrators, school health providers and physical education coaches is a great way to further your outreach. If you have any questions throughout the year or have a success story to share, email me HERE.

Healthy Lifestyles Liaison
