Summary: The new center will support work done in the private sector that looked at education/health outcomes. For example, the W. K. Kellogg Foundation is addressing the health and well-being of children from interrelated fronts, including nutrition and K-12 education (http://www.wkkf.org/grantseekers). The grantee will supplement the work of these foundations by promoting an examination of the specific mechanisms through which educational experiences and activities are linked to health outcomes, examine the pathways and recommended more targeted interventions.
