  • o   undo the culture of " children unwellness"  that has appeared in our schools
  • o   tap into the competitive advantage of wellness (for students and staff alike)
  • o   understand the individual, organizational and community responsibility of creating a school culture of wellness
  • o   identify steps to improve health status and its impact on the academic performance and social-emotional wellness of our students
  • o   unpack the NYS standards for Health, Physical Education and Consumer Science : http://www.p12.nysed.gov/sss/schoolhealth/schoolhealtheducation/healthPEFACSLearningStandards.pdf

In addition to a keynote presentation, the conference model also includes breakout sessions addressing topics related to obesity and the wellness of children/students.
