[No authors listed]

Abstract

As part of its continuing mission to serve trustees and staff of health foundations and corporate giving programs, Grantmakers In Health (GIH) convened a group of grantmakers and education experts on May 27, 2009, for an informative discussion about ways in which preschools and schools are working to improve outcomes related to children's health. The Issue Dialogue Reaching Kids: Partnering with Preschools and Schools to Improve Children's Health synthesized the latest research on health-related issues affecting children's educational outcomes. It also provided illustrative examples of foundation-driven initiatives aimed at promoting collaborations between the health and education sectors to improve children's health and development outcomes. This Issue Brief summarizes background materials compiled for the meeting and highlights key themes and findings that emerged from the day's discussion among meeting participants.
