Eat.Right.Now. Drexel University
Drexel University partners with the School District of Philadelphia in the provision of nutrition education to elementary, middle and high schools. Drexel is now in its thirteenth year of conducting successful after school girls' clubs in several middle schools. Since it services the majority of high schools in the District, it has developed an extensive library of lessons geared towards this age group and has recently completed the process of evaluating the effectiveness of this curriculum. For FY16, we are conducting a Middle School Impact Evaluation of our curriculum and are collaborating with Adagio Health in Pittsburgh in this endeavor. Another unique aspect of our program is the tailoring of lessons for the variety of special needs classes and additional extension activities for teachers to reinforce life skills.
