Congrats to our partners at IMPACT, the physical fitness program for elementary students featured in today’s This Week @ UC San Diego.  IMPACT is an exciting, cross-campus collaboration between UC San Diego School of Medicine Center for Community Health and UC San Diego Athletics with the San Diego Unified School District.  The connection between the two campus entities came about through the CREATE STEM Success Initiative, which helps link campus resources to the San Diego K-12 community.  Kate McDevitt at School Wellness Programs at UC San Diego’s Center for Community Health and Ken Grosse at UC San Diego Athletics spearheaded the partnership after an introduction by CREATE.  Read more about CREATE’s work last spring with this outstanding program.
