GROTON PUBLIC SCHOOLS K - 12 HEALTH CURRICULUM PHILOSOPHY
Building health literacy is vital to an individual as well as to our society. A health literate individual has the ability to receive, analyze and understand health information and develop the competence to use it to enhance their lives in a healthy way. Health literacy is teaching the core health concepts, with the skills needed to promote health and prevent disease. Through health literacy, we can offer our students the opportunity to become healthy, responsible and productive members of our society.
