Health Advocacy Program consists of 20 one-hour lessons, each with teacher scripts for discussions and hands-on activities and student worksheets. It covers healthy eating, exercise, relationships, sexuality, stress and medical issues like high blood pressure, diabetes and depression. Videos for staff show the Program in action.

It has numerous handouts from the other books in the Program, includes activities to improve student health, helps instruct students to make and achieve personal health goals, and targets parental involvement. Each lesson has fun activities for the classroom and home, a health knowledge question, and a page for jotting down health notes.
