Your First Source for Health Education
At the Robert Crown Center for Health Education (RCC), our mission is to motivate and educate children and youth to lead healthy, happy and safe lives. We envision a world in which all children and youth are equipped with the knowledge, attitudes and skills to positively impact the health of their minds and bodies. As the nation's very first health education center, RCC has been a leader and innovator in the field for half a century. More than 5 million students have learned from our science-based programs about healthy eating, puberty, human reproduction, tobacco, and alcohol and drug abuse prevention. We reach more than 90,000 young people from eight counties annually. Our vast experience and knowledge makes us the premier health education resource center in the nation.
In today's fast-paced world, children face a whole new set of choices, challenges and threats. Young people want and need guidance they can trust. Our educational experiences emphasize prevention by teaching kids what they need to know in order to make good choices and develop healthy habits that last a lifetime.
At the Robert Crown Center for Health Education, our curriculum covers important topics in a sensitive manner, adapted for individual audiences and learning needs. Educational experiences are interactive and meet community needs, state learning objectives as well as national health priorities.
