Passport to Health
Passport to Health outreach program teaches elementary school children
how to adopt healthy behaviors.
Since 2005, we have offered this program to Delaware County schools through our current partnerships, Fox Chase Crozer-Keystone Cancer Partnership, TD Bank, and First Niagara. Designed for 3rd, 4th and 5th graders, Passport To Health educates students about healthy behaviors that could help lower their risk of cancer later in life.
Every month, participating schools receive an activity packet that includes information and kid-friendly worksheets on topics such as genetics, lung cancer and tobacco, exercise, diet and nutrition and sun safety. Students work with the packets during classroom downtime, and Crozer-Keystone collects the packets monthly and delivers a new packet.
This program has grown from just five schools in 2005 to 26 schools today, with 5,700 students participating.
