$375,000 grant to help Bullock Co. students

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Troy University has received a $375,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to extend its Healthy Schools Healthy Kids Healthy Families program.

The grant will be implemented in Union Springs Elementary School through a consortium consisting of the University, Bullock County School System, Main Drug Store, Bullock County Hospital and Southern Springs.

Director of Troy University's School of Nursing Bernita Hamilton says "Healthy Schools Healthy Kids Healthy Families plans to show how a designated health promotion nurse with community support can ultimately influence health behaviors in children and their families."

The three main goals of the program are to demonstrate the benefit of a school-based comprehensive wellness model for elementary children in rural areas, to change health behaviors of elementary children to more wellness focus and to continue and increase collaboration of the community to ensure wellness promotion in schools and communities.
