The Cooper Institute Difference

The Cooper Institute disseminates evidenced-based health behavior change programs, materials, and content to many different public health, corporate, and community groups worldwide. We do this through partnerships with publishers, licensing arrangements with clients, content development contracts, and direct sales to consumers.

Let Us Help Your Organization's Wellness Needs

Curricula and Programs

Most of our behaviorally-based curricula and programs are based on resources and processes that have proven effective in clinical trials at The Cooper Institute. We can provide the educational materials and staff training that are needed to implement the programs. Programs are currently being successfully used in worksites, hospitals, community health programs, senior residences, colleges and universities, fitness centers, as well as by individuals.

Content Provider

Because of our expertise in developing physical activity and nutrition education programs and products, The Cooper Institute has been contracted by public and private organizations to design and write articles, scripts, fact sheets, books, workshops, and other health education materials as work-for-hire projects.
