About the Program
Future Well Kids is a fun, hands-on way for students ages 10-13 to learn how to increase their likelihood of living a fuller, healthier life without diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Abbott and its foundation, the Abbott Fund, aim to help people live fuller, healthier lives, which is the goal of Future Well Kids. By partnering with schools and community organizations, we’re teaching children that healthy habits can last a lifetime. The program's designed to empower students, support teachers, and engage Abbott employees, who will be delivering curriculum that encourages physical fitness and proper nutrition.
Abbott Fund was established by Abbott in 1951 as a philanthropic foundation. We invest in innovative ideas that expand access to health care, strengthen communities where we live and operate, and promote science and medical education. In partnership with others, we strive to make a lasting impact on people’s lives and encourage others to take positive action.
