Change that Lasts: Creating Healthy Communities
Learn how to become a 'Champion of Change' in the places where you live, learn, play, work and worship
What: Does your workplace offer a Zumba class? Is smoking prohibited on your church's property? Does your daughter's school cafeteria offer healthy choices? Each of these actions encourages healthy living and feeling good.
We can all help each other when it comes to choosing healthy behaviors. This training provides you with tools you can use to initiate change where you live, learn, play, work and worship. We'll look at how healthy change begins by working "upstream" through environmental, policy, or system change. By choosing to use these tools, we can address the major health problems facing our community, including obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer.
