SBHC Story: “Longest Day of Play” in Kentucky

This story comes from a submission to our #BacktoSchool contest in August. We’ll post similar stories over the next several months.

Health Kids Clinic in KentuckyFocusing on the students they serve, the Healthy Kids Clinic in Kentucky participated in the “Longest Day of Play” at Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery on Saturday, June 27, 2015. Reaching students from several counties in the area, volunteers from the Healthy Kids Clinic Care Coordination team taught students the importance of heart health and encouraged physical activity.

Over 150 kids and teens attended the event! Exercises included the hula hoop, jump rope, and several more. We’re proud of the Healthy Kids Clinic for showing that they are student-focused, which is one of our core competencies.

Many thanks to Cindy Burkett of Cumberland Family Medical for submitting this story.
