We are all scrambling to help the kids and families we serve stay healthy and engaged during this unprecedented time. As a response to the COVID-19 emergency, CATCH Global Foundation created CATCH at Home to provide free and easy access to several of CATCH's evidence-based health, nutrition, physical education, and vaping prevention materials. During the webinar, you will get an overview and tour of the Heath@Home free Google Classroom designed for parents and students as well as the free Distance Learning Resources on CATCH.org for educators including new topical content such as immune health and risk of lung disease and vaping.
