To help get kids moving and encourage the city's youth to understand the importance of daily exercise, Partners HealthCare is supporting Wellness Champions in schools across Boston. Together, with the Boston Public Schools Health and Wellness Department, Partners is training professionals at schools in Boston--whether they are teachers, paraprofessionals, nurses, parents, or others, on how to become wellness champions and really be creative in thinking of ways to work fun bits of exercise into kids' daily routines at school.
