What We Do
Hult Center for Healthy Living is a nonprofit organization whose youth health education classes supplement the health education efforts of Illinois schools, as well as for families, civic groups, youth organizations, and social agencies. Our team offers programs for Pre-K through high school students about many health-related topics. The programs and services are designed to meet your classroom objectives as well as Illinois State Goals for Learning. The center’s signature health education programs are based around the four teaching theaters located on site at Hult Center for Healthy Living- General Health featuring TAM- the Transparent Anatomical Mannikin, Nutrition, Reproductive Health, and Substance Abuse Prevention. Most of the health education programs can go ‘on the road’ and be implemented in schools throughout Central Illinois via outreach programming. Virtual education and E-Learning programs are also available for audiences outside of the Central Illinois area. Many of the programs and services can be tailored to fit the unique needs of schools and youth. To schedule a program, please visit this link.
