Select Research

The highest priority of the foundation is investing in research.

Research is required to demonstrate the impact of our health and wellness curriculum in schools. Our partnership with Stanford University and University of Virginia furthers our understanding of the impact of our curriculum which focuses on mindful movement, social, emotional and academic learning development. Since 2011, research teams have been studying the implementation and outcomes of these programs within the context of the school day.
