We’re building a future where every child receives the quality and quantity of health education they need to grow and thrive every year.
Inadequate health education leads to loneliness, preventable diseases, and a strained health care system that consumes 17% of the nation’s GDP. In fact, health illiteracy is so profound in the U.S. that its estimated annual economic impact is $3T. At Lessonbee, we are building a future where every child receives the quality and quantity of health education they need to grow and thrive, and all young people complete grade school with the knowledge and skills to promote individual, family, and community health.
REAP (Relevant and Emotionally Affirming Practices) and SOW (Student’s Observed Well-being) was born of the necessity to create the conditions for data-driven health and wellness education in schools and to measure the impact of health education on young people’s well-being as they progress through grades K-12. Not a destination, but a model of continuous quality improvement, REAP and SOW are constantly working together, as outputs inform inputs, inputs drive outputs, and both are necessary for outcomes.
