Building Sound Bodies and Sound Minds




Inadequate physical activity is a behavioral pattern established during youth. Many schools are forced to cut back or eliminate resources for physical education, contributing to an increased number of overweight, physically inactive students. The goal of UCLA Health Sound Body Sound Mind is to help schools and educators prepare students for a lifetime of healthy activity by installing state-of-the-art fitness programs in middle and high schools. In 2015, the Sound Body Sound Mind Foundation committed $3 million to establish a partnership with UCLA Health. Now known as UCLA Health Sound Body Sound Mind, the joint organization replicates the original program model of the Sound Body Sound Mind Foundation, while taking advantage of UCLA Health's network of experts and individuals working in the Los Angeles community.
