Project Healthy Schools - Detroit
The University of Michigan’s Project Healthy Schools, in collaboration with community partners, strives to improve the present and future health of middle school students through school-based education and environmental initiatives. Health behaviors are influenced and improved by these five program goals:
- Eat more fruits and vegetables
- Make better beverage choices
- Be active
- Eat less fast and fatty foods
- Spend less time in front of a screen
PHS completes wellness curriculum in middle schools, supports farm to school in the cafeteria, help improve school food options, runs garden and culinary after-school programming, and conducts health screenings in all partner schools.
