Play Well paper available for distribution
June 1, 2017

June 2017…This year’s special topic, “Play Well: Preparing for a Healthy Life!,” afforded student reporters the opportunity to report in-depth on bone health, aerobic exercise, healthy snacking, and resiliency, among other topics. Some of the reporters’ stories not only appeared in their school’s health newspapers, but also in a community edition paper, Healthy Neighbors. Healthy Neighbors includes illustrations from the poster contest and a compilation of stories from the year such as advice from the Philadelphia Flyers and Eagles team doctor on how to stay healthy, nutritious and healthy snacks, and why you should consider drinking milk after a workout to refuel instead of a sports drink.  The paper also includes excerpts from Leading Healthy Change In Our Communities 2017. Read the paper.

Healthy NewsWorks has printed 3,000 copies of the paper for distribution in the community. The Health Care Improvement Foundation and the Pennsylvania Health Literacy Coalition are helping to distribute the paper.

If you would like free copies of the paper to circulate in your community, please contact:

Healthy Neighbors is made possible through generous support from Quest Diagnostics, Einstein Healthcare Network, The Healthcare Improvement Foundation, and the Pennsylvania Health Literacy Coalition, among other supporters.
