Announcing the New Michigan Model for Health Portal for Teachers and Educators

We are happy to announce the launch of our new Michigan Model For Health™ website portal for teachers, educators, and curriculum coordinators!


Since the launch of the new digital format for the K-12 health curriculum in 2020, once again, the MMH Program continues to evolve to meet the online needs of its health education partners. The MMH Portal is a one stop shop for all partner needs to access the digital curriculum and online resources.


The portal was created in response to new MMH resources released including a revamped online training module to support MMH implementation in the classroom, and a future launch of student online lessons for Grades 7-12 alcohol, tobacco and other drugs health unit to use within the classroom and/or virtual instruction. In addition, the changes incorporate teacher and health coordinator feedback to improve the navigation and security to access protected content and data within the MMH digital platform.
