Bronx Health REACH Partners with A Plus NYC to Promote School Wellness
Last year, Bronx Health REACH collaborated with A Plus NYC as part of its ‘PS2013’ campaign to shape an education agenda for the new Mayor. Through this collaboration, we worked with school wellness advocates from across the city to put together a policy paper on the importance of nutrition and physical education for improving school wellness and academic outcomes. Nutrition education, school meals, and physical education are necessary for a student’s healthy mind and body but are often overlooked in planning academic programming. The policy paper provides recommendations for the New York City administration, along with examples of best policy and practice. To access the full paper, please visit the A Plus NYC website at: http://aplusnyc.org/school-wellness/
