Teachers across Nebraska and Iowa do more than teach lessons - they inspire children, believe in children, and show them the way. These teachers go about quietly shaping the next generation by opening minds and nurturing personal growth. It's more than a job - it's an investment in the future.

As your community’s academic health partner, CHI Health understands the power of education. That’s why we’re pleased to offer teachers throughout the region a new classroom resource: LifeU, hands-on lessons for healthier students.

Each LifeU lesson - for grades K, 7 and 12 - puts an interactive, age-appropriate spin on an important life topic, such as the difference between good and bad germs, skin cancer prevention and healthy sleep habits. The curriculum was developed in partnership with Midland University and under the direction of Dr. Kerry Williams, associate professor of education.

LifeU is completely free. Simply place your order below and a LifeU box will arrive within two weeks with everything you need - from health standards and objectives to materials and resources.

As an academic health system, CHI Health feels an affinity with educators like you who strive every day to engage young minds. We’re excited that LifeU can help you bring new lessons alive for your students.
