ABOUT US

A non-profit 501(C)(3) organization, HealthMPowers was founded in 1999 to promote healthy eating and physical activity in schools using the evidence-based guidelines established by the CDC. Though child obesity is a critical issue in Georgia and the nation at large, there are few organizations providing in-school  services and training to reach this core audience.

Providing schools with the opportunity and resources to get students active is an important part of changing the culture. As an evidence-based public health program, HealthMPowers has established a proven track record over the past decade of improving student health knowledge, behavior, physical activity and school policies—without taking away valuable class time. 

Our Mission: To empower healthy habits and transform environments where children live, learn and play.
