Do you know what are GO, SLOW and WHOA foods? My students know! Thank you Hip Hop Public Health for teaching healthy eating and living in such a fun way!Eileen TiradoAdaptive P.E. Teacher, West Palm Beach, Florida
The American College of Sports Medicine, the largest organization in the fields of sports medicine and exercise science, is extraordinarily pleased to partner with Hip Hop Public Health. HHPH is a uniquely powerful innovation in improving the health of American youth. It not only closes the gap among research, public health communication, health literacy, and urban life, it actually redefines and transforms reality.Jim WhiteheadCEO/Executive Vice President, American College of Sports Medicine
WOW! That is about all I have to say about Hip Hop Public Health. What a fabulous program you all ran today at PS 81. Kids and teachers had a blast!Abbe SargeantP.E. Teacher, P.S. 81 New York City
The Hip Hop H.E.A.L.S. program exceeded all of our expectations. Our students were involved, excited, and benefited from the lessons learned. Our cafeteria manager also loved what he saw with the "Go, Slow, Whoa" stoplight. I think you have tapped into a way to connect with our students and will make a positive impact in their eating choices. You have given us a great starting point and conversation starter to work from moving forward and I thank you for that!Nicholas Stavola P.E. Teacher, P.S. 105 New York City
