MSD Wayne, IU Health Celebrate Beginning of 10-Year Partnership

MSD Wayne and Indiana University Health celebrated the launch of a new 10-year partnership, focused on the health and well-being of district employees, student athletes, and the Wayne Township community, on September 9. The celebration took place on the 50-yard line of the new artificial turf installed this season for the Ben Davis Giants.

The new turf at Ben Davis High School’s football stadium is funded completely by IU Health, which allows MSD Wayne to continue to dedicate taxpayer dollars to the classroom.

The IU Health-MSD Wayne partnership includes the district’s health plan, onsite wellness center, and athletic trainers. The partnership also includes support for the Wayne Township Education Foundation. This wrap-around relationship is an innovative best practice in creating healthy school districts.
