Expanded School Health Curriculum

RESOLVED, That the North Carolina Medical Society supports the use of a required health curriculum within the school system that addresses such issues as accidents, homicides, suicides, obesity, physical fitness, nutrition, self-esteem, tobacco and substance abuse, pregnancy, child, elder, and spouse abuse, sexually transmitted infection, and other sexual issues in a comprehensive and age-appropriate fashion, and supports efforts to include parents in the teaching about these subject areas so that the environment at home will support the choice of a healthy lifestyle.
