Wellness Week: February 23- 27!

2nd Annual Wellness Week 2015This is our 2nd annual Wellness Week and KGA youth organizers will be talking about our campaign victory of securing a school- based health center with teen- only hours at Roosevelt Elementary school!  Set to open in the Fall of 2015, KGA youth organizers will be surveying students asking them what health resources and services should be at the new center to help them stay healthy and feel well.

Wellness Week is an opportunity to connect students to the information, resources and skills to support their physical, emotional, and mental health and is part of KGA’s Youth at the CORE Campaign to establish Wellness Centers at local high schools.

February is also National School Based Health Care Awareness Month and organizations like KGA are highlighting the importance of school- based health centers as a critical component to a student’s academic success.
