Building Healthy Communities: Engaging Middle Schools Through Project Healthy Schools

Project Healthy Schools Eligibility - Step 1 of 8

What is Building Healthy Communities? Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan founded Building Healthy Communities (BHC) in 2009 to fight childhood obesity and lead children to a healthier future. It has grown into a collaboration among multiple organizations committed to improving the physical and mental health of children and preventing childhood obesity. Building Healthy Communities programs include the Step-Up for School Wellness Program, Engaging Middle Schools through Project Healthy Schools (partnered with the University of Michigan), and Reducing Health Disparities in Elementary Schools (partnered with Wayne State University).
