2017 Colorado Healthy Schools Summit

Presented in partnership with

Colorado Coalition for Healthy Schools


To create healthy and engaging learning environments, we need to give students what they need to succeed. On Friday, March 3, we’ll shine a spotlight on comprehensive approaches to a healthy school culture that contributes to student success.

This premier school health and wellness professional learning event brings Colorado educators, students, parents, business leaders, and education partners together from across the state.

Together we will:

  • Celebrate the 2017 Healthy School Champions – innovative schools who implement coordinated approaches to school health and wellness to support student learning.
  • Discover educational strategies that promote student growth and educator success in breakout sessions.
  • Collaborate and network with your education peers and experts in the field to better meet the needs of Colorado schools and students.

Get Inspired!
