School Wellness Champions

The WELL campaign knows there are a number of individuals and groups who are already working to improve school wellness across New York State; those who are affected personally or professionally by the lack of strong policy. As part of our campaign, we are partnering with and learning from these individuals, shining a light on their existing efforts. Together with these School Wellness Champions we are sharing accomplishments, insights, and stories with local media and elected officials; connecting with other wellness advocates; and influencing state policy through advocacy trainings and opportunities. Wellness policy becomes personal when we can see the faces of those affected and hear from the voices of people who care.
