Project Healthy Schools expands to Northern Michigan

U-M’s Project Healthy Schools, in collaboration with community partners, is designed to reduce childhood obesity and its long-term health risks.

The program, which is currently in more than 60 Michigan middle schools, encourages increased physical activity and improved eating habits through education, environmental change and measurement.

Schools in the program include: Ishpeming middle school, Kalkaska middle school, Newberry high school, Manistique middle and high school and Father Marquette middle school.

Project Healthy Schools is progressing into a sustainable program that is teaching more than 41,000 students about the importance of physical activity and healthy eating.
