What can a school district do to encourage healthy students? Aimee, from Highline Public Schools, created a story to talk about efforts over the past several years to improve health outcomes for Highline's students, families and community. They began with a simple fact: Schools cannot achieve their primary mission of education if their students and staff are not healthy.
We're particularly excited by this new story that brings together institutional change, obesity prevention, and .....acroyoga. Watch Dr. Lenna Liu's story -- it will not only have you requesting your schools and workplace to get rid of their soda machines, it might get you signed up for circus classes!
Dr. Lenna Liu tells her story about walking the talk, from modeling healthy activity for her children and her patients to helping her workplace, Seattle Children's, model healthy nutritional environments.
