Live HealthSmart schools engage not only the minds of tomorrow's leaders, but the whole person, creating a brighter future for all of us. Take the first steps to become a Live HealthSmart school today!

Schools can earn a Live HealthSmart designation, which will entitle a designated school to the use of the Live HealthSmart seal, as well as publicity through the UAB-based website and print materials. Over time, a Live HealthSmart school may enjoy additional perks and benefits.

First steps to becoming a Live HealthSmart School:


Adopt healthy vending and school cafeteria options, including fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and unprocessed foods.


Increase opportunities for physical activity for students who don’t participate in team or competitive sports.


Encourage students to get 60 minutes of physical activity each day.


Develop a school health council to review and monitor prevention and wellness goals.
