Maryland School Wellness Partnership

Maryland School Wellness Partnership logo

Welcome to the Maryland School Wellness Partnership website! We are an academic-government partnership that aims to enhance opportunities for healthy eating and physical activity for Maryland students by helping schools and school systems create and implement strong and comprehensive written wellness policies.



Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene

We believe in using strong science to advance school wellness.  We utilize valid and reliable assessment methods and implement/recommend evidence-based approaches for all children to grow and learn in health-promoting school environments.



Maryland State Department of Education - Preparing World Class Students

In addition to our work in Maryland, we collaborate with school wellness experts from around the country through working groups focused on wellness policy implementation and the evaluation of health-promoting environments in schools. We hope that this website will be useful for our fellow academic and government colleagues, school systems/districts and schools as well as parents and students striving to build health promoting school environments.
