The Reducing Obesity in Students Everywhere (ROSE) health promotion presentations educate students in grades 3-12 about nutrition, physical activity, reducing screen time, sleep, smoking, stress management, and the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. This article describes the content of the presentations, how information is delivered, strategies used, and reports of what students learned and behaviors they changed. Students' evaluation surveys indicate that the brief presentations are engaging and effective in conveying health information and facilitating behavior change. At one-month follow-up, 92% of elementary school students and 88.5% of high school students reported making at least 1 healthy behavior change.
