“Community Health Choice is dedicated to community wellness and knows that schools play a critical role in promoting the health of young children and helping them establish lifelong healthy behaviors,” said Amber Buchanan, Marketing Manager for Community Health Choice.

Community Health Choice has partnered with GoNoodle to get thousands of kids in Jefferson County moving more at school and at home. GoNoodle’s online movement videos and games get kids running, jumping, dancing, stretching, and practicing moments of mindfulness right next to their desks. Grounded in research, GoNoodle delivers proven results by bettering behavior, more focused time-on-task, and improved academic performance.
