Health Leadership Council
Develop a Comprehensive Health Plan for the Cleveland Municipal School District (CMSD). A series of goals and objectives have been developed related to the leading health indicators identified in the Surgeon General Report, School Health Index (2000). “Promoting health behaviors among students is an important part of the fundamental mission of schools: to provide young people with the knowledge and the skills they need to become healthy and productive adults.” CSHS and CMSD are collaborating to improve health education and health services by first insuring that all CMSD students have access to a complete health status evaluation and physical examination as part of an experiential education process for health professional students working under University Faculty supervision.
