Share On Social!

Using data from the 2012-13 school year, researchers with Bridging the Gap’s National Wellness Policy Study collaborated with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to update a series of briefs and an accompanying PowerPoint presentation highlighting opportunities to support wellness policies through evidence-based strategies.

These briefs provide an assessment of policies across school districts nationwide related to seven wellness policy components. They also highlight areas of opportunity for state agencies, school districts, and schools to strengthen wellness policy components.  The PowerPoint presentation provides stakeholders with an easy-to-use resource to present the research findings, recommendations, resources, and other information found in the briefs.
