The health-related choices students learn to make when they’re young can have a lasting impact on their lifetime well-being, happiness, and academic success. EVERFI’s Healthier Me is an innovative, games-based middle school health curriculum that gives students the tools to make healthy, informed decisions when it comes to health and nutrition.
