Healthier Generation's Work in North Carolina
Healthier Generation works closely with schools, community organizations, and partners throughout North Carolina to address a wide range of health topics, including food access and nutrition, chronic disease, vaccine access and confidence, and tobacco use. Together, our work is creating healthier school and home environments for children and families.
Since 2007, Healthier Generation has worked with more than 1,000 North Carolina schools and 112 out-of-school time programs, impacting over 650,000 students with our innovative health resources, trainings, and customized support.
105 North Carolina schools have earned recognition as one of America's Healthiest Schools for their outstanding efforts to support student, staff, and family well-being.
