Topic: The Importance of Evidence-Based Programs and Partnership

Watch Project Healthy Schools and the Michigan Clinical Outcomes Research and Reporting Program (MCORRP) host a conversation about the value of evidence-based school health programs like PHS, which has been proven by data analyses to improve student health outcomes and behaviors. The ongoing analysis of PHS is possible through an ongoing and successful 18-year partnership between PHS and MCORRP, a research lab founded by Dr. Kim Eagle. In short, analyses of both behavioral and physiologic measures have shown significant improvements in students’ cardiometabolic health and lifestyle behaviors after the implementation of the PHS program. Learn more about the data, results, and plans for future research and practice during our conversation with the Project Healthy Schools community!
