Takeda and Discovery Education Partner on New Initiative Centering on Health Equity

Takeda, a global biopharmaceutical leader, and Discovery Education, the worldwide edtech leader, today announced a new partnership focused on transformative health equity education. The education initiative – Better Health in Action: From Classroom to Community – is built to empower the next generation of health equity leaders to learn about the urgent widespread issue of health inequity and to be a force for change.

Designed to engage students in the critical topics of health equity globally and their connections to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), Better Health in Action provides students, educators, and families in grades 6-8 with a suite of engaging digital resources at no cost. Better Health in Action’s standards-aligned resources are designed for wherever learning takes place and provide students with tools for exploring health equity, understanding health literacy, and addressing health inequities in their communities.

Through videos, self-paced learning modules, and family discussion guides that will soon be available in nine languages, this initiative analyzes community inequities and addresses how each person can do their part to help address them through improved health and education. In addition, the Better Health in Action website, to be available globally, takes students inside the lives of a diverse portfolio of professionals with career paths centered on STEM and health, offering students opportunities to imagine their future and potential in the journey towards health equity.
