Eric is excited to support CATCH in its efforts to unite communities through school health and wellness initiatives. Long term, the digital experience that CATCH builds for teachers, students, and parents can be designed to increase health literacy and drive behavior change. Today, CATCH teachers’ ability to quickly access materials and lesson plans affects adoption and ultimately, the quality of in-school CATCH programs. Eric will focus his advisory efforts on defining, simplifying, and enhancing those digital experiences through CATCH.org.
