Hanover Park, IL - The Quick & Easy Guide to School Wellness Launches to Enthusiastic Reviews
Healthy Schools Campaign and School Health Corp. are pleased to announce the release of The Quick & Easy Guide to School Wellness, a multi-media how-to guide filled with comprehensive information, practical advice, tools and resources.
The guide made its debut June 28 at the National Association of School Nurses conference in Nashville, Tenn. with positive and enthusiastic reviews from school nurse leaders in attendance. Nearly 500 school nurses requested the guide in the first two days of its release, and hundreds of additional school stakeholders have ordered the guide since its release to the public July 11.
"This is an incredibly practical tool for everyone who cares about school wellness and student health," said Susan Rogers, president of School Health Corporation, the nations leading provider of medical supplies and equipment to schools and sports teams. "School nurses, teachers, and parents have the opportunity to make a real difference for children's lifelong health and wellness and this guide provides the tools they can use to take action and start making changes."
The guide, available free of charge to schools and non-profits, was developed in response to a need for school stakeholders, nurses, teachers, parents, administrators and students to effectively implement the school wellness policies that became mandatory in Fall of 2006. The guide includes multiple case studies, bonus tip sheets, and a comprehensive set of documents and resources from leading organizations throughout the country.
"We want people to understand that they have the power to make their school wellness policy work, to really change things for the better," said Jean Saunders, director of school wellness for the Healthy Schools Campaign, an independent not-for-profit organization dedicated to healthy school environments. "It doesn't have to be overwhelming. This guide brings together the most important resources in one place and makes it easy to create healthy change one step at a time."
