We at HealthCorps continue to remember and mourn
the many individuals who lost their lives on September 11th.
We honor their memory and pray for those whose lives were irrevocably changed that day.
We continue to send our support to their loved ones.
As a new school year begins, it’s also a perfect time to reflect on some of the testimonials from this past spring school semester. They convey the impact HealthCorps coordinators have on heath and well- being, and their influence is not just confined to the students. Teachers and school staff members also benefit from HealthCorps lessons!
