The Wellness Impact: Enhancing Academic Success through Healthy School Environments

The Wellness Impact: Enhancing Academic Success through Healthy School Environments is a national issue-framing report about the links between nutrition, physical activity, and academic success.

  • MMS developed the report on behalf of GENYOUth and its partners, working closely with academic, government, education, and health and wellness experts in the process.
  • MMS also produced several briefs based on the report for school administrators, parents, and students.
  • The report was produced as a follow-up to the national GENYOUth Nutrition + Physical Activity Learning Connection Summit, held in September 2012, which elevated the “learning connection” science-based concept and engaged more than 400 thought leaders, students, educators, and business leaders in advancing school wellness. MMS managed the agenda and content planning for this seminal event.
