Alliance for a Healthier Generation Adds Growth & Innovation Division

Investment will increase capacity to meet growing demand for Whole Child Health offerings

Today, Alliance for a Healthier Generation is announcing investment in a new Growth & Innovation division to meet growing demand for programming that advances whole child health. This demand is evidenced by high attendance in virtual learning webinars such as Strategies for Increasing Attendance: Family Engagement & School Health Services, year-over-year increases in applications to Healthier Generation’s America’s Healthiest Schools program, and high engagement with video content developed in collaboration with YouTube Kids. 

This new division, led by Emily Shore, Vice President, Growth & Innovation, will grow Healthier Generation’s K-12 partner pipeline by expanding on its current portfolio of over 50,000 schools, school districts, and out-of-school-time programs while also pursuing new districts and states, identifying opportunities for developing new content, products, and services in current and new markets, and providing strategic recommendations for customizing virtual learning and instructional design platforms that align with business development and growth goals. 

“Our investment in growth and innovation demonstrates Healthier Generation’s commitment to pursuing a more accessible and equitable future for students, educators, and families,” said Kathy Higgins, chief executive officer at Healthier Generation. “With this additional capacity, we can accelerate the implementation of relevant, culturally responsive programming to meet the physical, mental, and social-emotional health needs of communities across the nation.”
