On May 31st, Partners for Active Living presented the 2017 Healthy Schools Forum. Educators were offered a variety of professional development opportunities thanks to our partnership with the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, Eat Smart Move More Spartanburg, and Spartanburg County School Districts.

Sessions were offered on school gardening, health promotion for school staff, physical activity in the classroom and the compassionate schools program. The keynote presentation featured Dr. Glenn Weaver from the Arnold School of Public Health at USC. Dr. Weaver spoke about his research on the positive impact schools have on student health.
