Social development involves the way that children relate to their social world and their ability to understand and express emotions, both their own and those of other individuals, such as their parents, teachers and other children. Social development involves learning to form and value relationships with others, feelings about self, and social adjustment to a variety of interactions over time.

Creating the healthiest nation starts with me!
Despite what we often hear and read, Americans are not the healthiest people in the world. In the U.S. we spend more on health care but live shorter lives and suffer more health issues than our peers in other high-income countries.
To create the healthiest nation, we all need to start by pledging to take two steps:
Creating a healthy me
We promise to eat well, exercise and get regular checkups. We will make healthy choices that improve our health and set an example for our family and friends.
Creating a healthy we
We recognize that there is a complex web of social and environmental factors that affect everyone’s health and limit the ability of many people to make healthy choices. Today we join the Generation Public Health movement to demand that our leaders consider these factors in all their decisions so that all people and all communities have the opportunity for long, healthy life.
It is only when we come together that we are strong enough to create the healthiest nation in one generation.
We are Generation Public Health.
