Culture of Health Series

Everyone deserves to live the healthiest life possible. Thanks to the support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), the Coalition is glad to highlight how community schools are making their schools and community healthier places for all. The Culture of Health Series will highlight various resources and examples of community schools, who are succeeding in creating a healthy culture and climate for their students, staff, and communities.
