Wetsman Foundation

Started contributing to Project Healthy schools in 2014.  Helped start the Science of Wellness Program in Cody High School in Detroit.

“When Kim [Eagle], who we respect very much, told us about the work PHS is doing, supporting the program seemed like a natural fit with our focus on supporting children’s health,” says Bill Wetsman, who along with his wife Janis, now serve on the PHS Advisory Board.
