Healthy Los Nietos... Building a Better Future
For over 10 years, PIH Health Foundation has regularly provided health care services to LNSD schools. The support is well known and trusted by students, parents and LNSD staff. In 2011, the PIH Health Family Residency Program was approached by LNSD to create a collaborative project to address obesity in the school district. "Healthy Los Nietos" is the newly created project, partnership between Family Medicine Residency Childhood Obesity Program and Los Nietos School District.
The mission for Healthy Los Nietos program is "A healthy Los Nietos Community through health promotion, education, clinical services and on-going community partnerships."
The partnership has chosen to adopt "CATCH", Coordinated Approach to Child Health as the obesity health promotion and prevention program to use. CATCH has received extensive praise and support for delivering de- sired outcomes to a large number of schools.
We are dedicated to our students, their health and the pursuit of preparing them to not only succeed in the classroom, but also in life. We are centered on providing students with healthy meals while they are here at school, but also committed to helping them to form healthy habits that will last a lifetime!
