What is Comprehensive School Health? How is it supported by the AMA Youth Run Club?
September 23, 2016
This video (launched at the Fall 2016 AMA Representative Forum by Dr. Kimberley Kelly, AMA CSH Representative) shows how the AMA Youth Run Club "checks all the boxes" of a Comprehensive School Health program, through its focus on physical activity, healthy eating and creating a positive social environment. By addressing these three priorities of CSH (as identified by Ever Active Schools), the AMA YRC "support(s) improvements in students' educational outcomes while addressing school health in a planned, integrated and holistic way."
