Candor Health Education has a strong history of working with community partners to respond to emerging health issues. In recent years, programs have been developed for the special needs community, the non-English speaking population and to address the growing heroin epidemic. These innovative, interactive programs are proven to increase social-emotional skill building and scientific understanding of the sort of risk-taking behavior that can negatively impact health. Research shows that students are better prepared to make healthy choices after receiving these prevention health programs.
