Heart Smart for Teens Program

Heart Smart for Teens is a program offered quarterly in schools throughout Montgomery County that focuses on educating and empowering students toward a healthier lifestyle. Students learn about a variety of topics, including USDA's My Pyramid, risk factors for heart disease, osteoporosis, eating disorders, making healthy food choices, and the importance of regular physical activity. The program uses fun group activities to increase students' awareness and understanding of how their health is affected by the food they eat and the amount of physical activity they get each day.
