Champaign-Urbana Public Health District Helps Teachers to Model Healthy Behaviors for Students

Champaign, IL - The Champaign-Urbana Public Health District (CUPHD) is helping schools in Champaign County implement CATCH (Coordinated Approach To Child Health). The CATCH program is a multi-component program that promotes positive healthy behaviors in students and emphasizes the need for a healthy lifestyle to improve both living and learning. A coordinated approach to promoting wellness involves modeling healthy behaviors. In order to model those behaviors, area CATCH schools have challenged each other to change their behavior for the better. Fisher Grade School, Thomasboro Grade School, Unity West Elementary School, and Carrie Busey Elementary School are competing in the first-ever CATCH Staff Challenge: A New Year A New Beginning.
