Presbyterian Hosts a Day of Service at APS Schools

More than 33 schools participated in healthy activities on Presbyterian's second annual "day of service" event.

As part of its continuing effort to improve our community’s health, Presbyterian Healthcare Services collaborated with 33 APS elementary schools for a Day of Service this past Thursday, Oct. 24.

"Our Day of Service was an important part of our commitment to improve the health of the patients, members and communities we serve, and we love being able to visit the schools and encourage kids to make healthy habits a part of their lives,” said Kathy Davis, RN, senior vice president and chief nursing officer for Presbyterian.

During the Day of Service, more than 500 company leaders visited schools throughout the state to engage students, faculty, and staff in activities that promote health and nutrition. Students had the opportunity to enjoy fun exercises including jumping rope, hula hooping, and dancing and will receive information about healthy eating and much more.
