AHA improves the health and well-being of Wake County residents by facilitating and supporting community initiatives.


Healthy Eating
Physical Activity
More Tools

There are numerous resources available to help schools meet and exceed local wellness policies, including the Wake County Public School System Wellness Policy

Parents, administrators, teachers and students can advocate for healthier schools by sharing these resources, forming a Wellness Committee that meets monthly, and following the AHA Best Practices for Healthy Schools.

Less than 15% of school children walk or bike to school, but walking one mile to and from school each day is 2/3rds of the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity a day.
