About the Programme
Future Well Kids is a fun, hands-on way for students aged 10-13 to learn how to increase their likelihood of living a fuller, healthier life without diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
With its Future Well Kids initiative, the Abbott Fund aims to build resilient, healthier communities around the world. By partnering with schools and community organizations, we’re teaching children that healthy habits can last a lifetime. The programme is designed to empower students, support teachers, and engage Abbott employees, who will be delivering the 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.
