This compilation features innovative approaches to collaboration and creative health-promoting activities that resulted from partnerships between local health departments and schools. The publication also includes some of the lessons local health departments have learned through working with their school systems. The goal of Building Healthier Schools, the second volume in the Building Healthier Communities Compendium Series, is to provide local health departments with case studies of peer health departments that have developed strong relationships with the educational community to combat poor nutrition and physical inactivity. In addition, the compendium offers information about national programs and resources available to local health departments.
