Healthy Learners highlights positive outcomes and personal stories

Healthy Learners is devoted to removing children's health barriers to learning with love and compassion, which is evident in the number of children it serves and the personal stories those children and their families have to tell.

The latest issue of the Healthy Insights from Healthy Learners newsletter highlights the numbers behind the services Healthy Learners provided in the 2013-2014 school year—which included 4,330 vision, dental, medication and other health-related services, while traveling more than 88,000 miles to provide access to health care for 1,380 children in five program areas across the state. During the school year, Healthy learners also increased the number of school districts served to 10 and the number of schools served statewide to 148.

The newsletter also features a story about one of the children the program served who won the national standing long jump title over the summer. Read the complete newsletter here.
