Health Education Lesson Plan (HELP) Kits

Health Education Lesson Plan Kits

HELP kits are “lessons in a box” for students and community groups with up-to-date information that has been reviewed and assembled by Akron Children’s Hospital.

These creative kits include books, activities, videos and audio programs developed to teach kids about a variety of common diseases, conditions and general health topics.
