People are traveling far distances to see the good news coming out of Algoma School District. Recently, Algoma School District hosted representatives from Sweden as they learned more about the Live Algoma Initiative, which focuses on developing a healthier lifestyle for children, individuals, employers, and the community. Superintendent Nick Cochart says the opportunity came from its relationship with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, where the two sides met at a winter conference in Florida.
Live Algoma has caught plenty of attention stateside as well after being named a finalist for the Robert Woods Johnson Culture of Health prize for its accomplishments locally.
