Centers Serving High Percentages of Young Hispanic Children Compare Favorably to Other Centers on Key Predictors of Quality

In this brief, the National Research Center on Hispanic Children & Families uses recent national data to better understand the predictors of quality of ECE centers that serve significant numbers of low-income Hispanic children from birth through age 5. Examples of predictors of quality include the use of a published curriculum, specific instructional practices, or ongoing support for professional development of ECE providers/teachers.

The American Heart Association Makes the Healthy Choice Easier in the Workplace
Today's consumers recognize healthy eating as an important lifestyle behavior. In fact, 75 percent of consumers know it's important to lead a healthy, balanced lifestyle and over three-fourths recognize that consuming healthy, nutritious foods are important factors in maintaining that lifestyle. At the  American Heart Association (AHA)  we are making healthy changes a priority in our workplace, where many adults spend much of their day. AHA's path to 100% healthy has helped cultivate social norms and encourage employees' healthy habits, while exceeding financial expectations.
