Teachers for Healthy Kids, a project of the California Teachers Association, is dedicated to improving the health and performance of students, teachers, and staff through addressing issues of children's health coverage, indoor air quality and asthma, and nutrition and physical activity.
The Teachers for Healthy Kids Health Outreach project works with school districts throughout California to promote the enrollment of children in no or low cost health, dental and vision insurance programs and works to impact state and local policies promoting health coverage for all children.
