The Social and Health Research Center is proud to teach many programs about health and wellness to children, parents, and teachers across the US. However, there are also many other wonderful educational materials out there by experts in their own fields! Below you will find links to resources we know will help you and your family be the healthiest it can be! Because health isn't just about eating right and exercising. We also need to take care of our teeth, learn about fire and water safety, and how to be safe bike riders.

Most of the time drowning doesn’t look or sound like it does in the movies. When 4-year-old Colin Holst drowned at a lifeguarded pool, his parents had no idea how quick and silent it could be. At Colin’s Hope, we’ve taught nearly a million families what they need to know and do to prevent a similar tragedy. We are a trusted voice for drowning prevention in Texas and beyond.
Drowning doesn’t discriminate—it affects all kinds of families.

There are a variety of potential situations in which it can be beneficial for a child to know CPR. For example, a sudden health problem could happen while they are with a babysitter, a single or stay-at-home parent, a grandparent, or a teacher on a field trip. When the caretaker in these situations is the ones who faces a life-threatening emergency in which their heart or breathing has stopped, a child trained in CPR can do what is necessary until help arrives.
