Partnerships & Collaborations

Physical education, health, and FACS teachers, as well as school administrators, are our most important partners; their commitment, cooperation, and feedback is key to the success of HEAL. HEAL also works closely with the state departments of health and education, the University of Alabama at Birmingham, Samford University, Jefferson State Community College, Alabama State University, Harding University, the Alabama State Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (ASAHPERD), Governor’s Commission on Physical Fitness and Sports, Faulkner University, Lakeshore Foundation, and more than 50 Alabama school systems. Together they help us develop, test, and evaluate our curricula; recruit and train teachers; deliver our programming; and promote our program.
