Brains and Bodies Awards Celebrate Healthy Schools

Advocates for Health in Action (AHA) is helping schools share ideas and learn from each other with the Brains and Bodies Awards program which recognizes schools in Wake County that are going the extra mile to meet and exceed local wellness policies and create a healthy school environment. 

AHA has developed best practices and profiles of each award winner to help other schools learn about opportunities to make positive changes for students and staff.  
The John Rex Endowment provides grant support for AHA, a group of diverse organizations and community members who are shaping the environment throughout Wake County so healthful eating and physical activity are the way of life.
