Alliance for a Healthier Generation Awards

 On Tuesday June 15, the Alliance for a Healthier Generation held its
annual Healthy Schools Program Forum in New York.  Integrative Nutrition graduate, Sarah Chaplin was in attendance to accept a Bronze award for her school, Thurgood Marshall Middle School, in Maryland.  President Bill Clinton was also on hand to speak on the important work The Alliance for a Healthier Generation is doing in over 9,000 schools. 

Sarah explains what receiving this award means to her, “It is an absolute privilege to be in a position to help a child take responsibility for their health and know that the work I have done with them will create habits that will last a lifetime.”

Founded in 2006 by the William J. Clinton Foundation and the American Heart Association and largely funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Alliance is focused on addressing one of the nation’s leading public health threats—childhood obesity.  The Alliance launched its Healthy Schools Program to support schools across the country in creating a healthier school environment.  Sarah’s school was among 179 schools recognized Wednesday by the Alliance and President Clinton.  The Gold Award was given to Memorial High School, West New York Town, New Jersey. 

"The 179 schools earning recognition today – the most in any year in the Alliance's history – join the ranks of schools from all over the United States that have shown exemplary commitment to the health of their students and staff," President Clinton said, "The Alliance is pleased to assist in these efforts in more than 9,000 schools in all 50 states to make innovative and healthy changes that will turn the tide on childhood obesity."
