The October 9th program at the Crown Plaza in Warwick will feature a keynote presentation on child/youth anxiety by Dr. Ellen Flannery-Schroeder and a look at a specialized RI elementary school with a strategic focus on health and wellness. Plus a “Year in Review” including details on the new RI healthy school marketing law and school breakfast challenge, the popular Exhibition of Community Partners, an energetic student-led physical activity break, and a delicious locally sourced breakfast buffet that will, once again, make this a not-to-be-missed event for the school wellness community.
The RI Healthy Schools Coalition continues to be committed to providing schools and district wellness committees guidance, technical assistance and regular communication about new wellness developments, best practices, grants, and community opportunities to continue to improve the school environment and set and reach wellness goals for our children and youth.
