About Us, Vision & Mission


About Us
The Kleist Health Education Center goes far beyond the traditional museum. Instead of our visitors passively watching, our health education classes are interactive, animated and full of vital health information.

The Kleist Health Education Center is an exciting and stimulating facility for students’ teachers, and Southwest Florida community members. All of our timely, challenging, and thought provoking health education programs are aligned to meet Florida's Common Core State Standards, assisting administrators and educators with school curriculum. Many of our teaching aids and program content enhance the latest in health education research. Our health education staff extends to you and your associates a personal invitation to make the Kleist Health Education Center an integral part of your instructional activities.

The Kleist Health Education Center, in conjunction with Florida Gulf Coast University’s College of Health Professions and Social Work, strives to promote wellness, quality life style choices, and healthy environments through excellence in education, research, service, and community partnerships.

The Kleist Health Education Center is an educational, not-for-profit organization devoted to promoting healthy lifestyles. Our mission is to cultivate life-long habits that empower individuals to make healthier lifestyle choices and reduce destructive decision making. Through the use of our dynamic interactive health education programs, children and adults within Southwest Florida will begin a lifetime journey of healthy living.
