The Robert Crown Center for Health Education has been a partner and a resource for teachers, health nurses, schools, parents, universities and public health departments for more than half a century. We understand the curriculum, scheduling and accountability challenges schools face. That’s why we travel to schools, classrooms, libraries and other settings across the Chicago metropolitan region, bringing our research-based health education programs to young people.
In addition to the educational experiences and exhibits that we bring to the classroom, our multiple centers continue to serve as premier educational destinations, equipped with state-of-the-art technology, props and visuals that make an impact on both students and adults, and create lasting memories.
Our programs are aligned with Illinois learning standards and contribute to the achievement of the Department of Health and Human Services Healthy People 2010 goals. Because our goal is to reach as many children as possible, we also offer onsite, online and outreach programs for the important adults in childrens’ lives including their parents, community group leaders and teachers.
At RCC, we strive to keep program fees low, so cost is never a barrier. Thanks to our generous scholarship donors, no child is ever turned away because of an inability to pay. Services are accessible to all learners, including those with disabilities and programs are adapted for students’ developmental levels.
