The State Department of Education has established five Health Education Resource Centers around the state for the purpose of assisting local education agencies in augmenting health education courses to include HIV prevention education. With the Department’s new emphasis on coordinated school health, physical activity, and nutrition, the Health Education Resource Centers have been designed to serve as a depository for equipment, curricula, and related materials. Designed on the “lending library” concept, local education agencies may borrow items for a designated period of time and then return the items to the resource center.
The centers have been established in collaboration with institutions of higher education. If schools in your system are interested in borrowing items to teach units in health education (including HIV prevention), physical activity, physical education, or nutrition, please contact the following people in your area for more information.
