Where we Learn

On campuses or at home, from trade schools to universities, the places where we learn touch people at nearly every stage of life—as preschoolers and teens, from adult learners to teachers near retirement.

Community hubs that affect our health

Schools aren’t just for students. They are workplaces for teachers and staff; athletic
facilities for kids and adults; meeting places for faith organizations and civic groups;
and community hubs that draw people to clubs, sporting events, festivals and farmers

Each of us spends years, sometimes decades, in schools and other places where we learn.
That means they make a big difference to our health.
