  • Description:
    Establishing healthy behaviors during childhood is easier and more effective than trying to change unhealthy behaviors during adulthood. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Division of Adolescent and School Health (DASH) promotes the health and well-being of children and adolescents to enable them to become healthy and productive adults. DASH also addresses critical types of adolescent health behavior that research shows contribute to the leading causes of death and disability among adults and youth. In addition to causing serious health problems, these behaviors also contribute to many educational and social problems that confront the nation, including failure to complete high school, unemployment, and crime.

    DASH supports state, territorial, and local agencies, and tribal governments to help strengthen their capacity to improve child and adolescent health. Through coordinated school health programs and other activities, DASH addresses critical health behaviors and other important topics, including alcohol and drug use, injury and violence, tobacco use, nutrition, physical activity, sexual risk behaviors, and asthma. DASH also supports a number of nongovernmental organizations to develop policies, guidelines, and trainings to assist schools and other youth-serving agencies in implementing high- quality programs.

    Collectively, the programs DASH supports are making a difference in the lives of our nation’s youth. The stories in this brochure illustrate the types of activities supported by DASH and highlight some of the exemplary work its partners undertake.
