HealthCorps at Benson High School helps teens get healthy in partnership with teachers, students, and ultimately families. Don’t you wish your teen came home and insisted you two go to the gym together? Well here is our continuing conversation with HealthCorps, which is one of those programs working with teens across the country in high schools to build mental resilience, fitness and good nutrition habits.
Today, we speak with student Maya Brown, her mother Myrsa, and Physical Education teacher, Katie Meyer about, their experience of working with HealthCorps at Benson High School, in Portland, Oregon. They exemplify the tremendous impact that focusing on health and wellness education can have on students, teachers, schools and people’s lives.
