Kaiser Permanente is one of the nation’s largest not-for-profit health plans, serving approximately 9.3 million members in eight states and the District of Columbia.
As a national effort with partnerships extending across the country, Thriving Schools seeks to impact health in schools on a broad scale while addressing health needs in the communities where we operate.
Thriving Schools online resources are free and available to everyone. We encourage all working toward school health to utilize these resources to support their work.
Good health has always been a priority for us, and it is part of Kaiser Permanente's misson to improve the health of our members and the communities we serve.
Kaiser Permanente has been working to promote health and wellness in schools for more than 25 years, through efforts such as our Educational Theatre Program, workforce wellness initiatives, physician volunteer days, community health initiatives, onsite school-based health clinics and union engagement. Through this work, we see the opportunity for schools to be an epicenter of positive change in communities where our members live, work and play. In 2013, Thriving Schools launched as a response to this opportunity. After all, almost one in five Kaiser Permanente members spends the majority of their weekdays on a school campus. We know that investing in school health is vital to improving the overall health of these members and their communities.
