04 Aug Join Us: Better Health, Better Learning
What is the connection between health and education?
For so many documented reasons, a student’s physical, emotional and mental health is critical to academic success and future achievement. Unfortunately, Tennessee falls behind the nation in student health in a number of measures. Our partner organization, SCORE, reviews the research and connections in their most recent report, Better Health, Better Learning.
You can download the report here: Better Health, Better Learning
On August 28th, we’ll take a step forward as a city and state to change those statistics. Join SCORE and NashvilleHealth at the Music City Center to hear from the region and the nation’s experts on health and education. Dr. Jill Biden, educator and former Second Lady, and Dr. Richard Besser, CEO of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, will join local and national leaders to share insight and recommended action so that Tennessee students can excel.
No matter your role in the community – business, public health, educator, administrator, non-profit leader, mom or dad – we all contribute to the health of our kids. Register here.
The schedule of events and speakers, which begins at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 4:00 p.m., is available here.
