• WELLNESS AROUND PINELLAS COUNTY SCHOOLS
     
    Wellness
    Through the years, the wellness program has found that the best way to reach our staff and provide them with important health information is to reach out directly, face-to-face at their worksite. Two years ago, we began a traveling health fair event called “My Health IQ”. Since its inception, we have been to all of our high schools, middle schools, exceptional centers (ESE), pTECS, food service department,Walter Pownall Service Center and the Administration Building with great results. By the end of last year, we had reached 2147 of our staff, with 817 participants at 18 health fairs in 2010 and 1330 (29 health fairs) in 2011. This year, we targeted half of the elementary schools and conducted 28 health fairs reaching an additional 1313 staff, bringing our 3 year total to 3460. It is our goal to continue the program and target the remaining half of the elementary schools during the 2012-2013 school year.
