Thank you to those who have registered for the Let’s Move Faith & Communities webinar training this coming Saturday, April 27th from 1-3pm Eastern on the National Institutes of Health’s We Can! program. For those who have not registered and would like to join us, please click here to register.
Saturday's webinar is being co-hosted by Northwest Parish Nurse Ministries and is the third in a special series of on-line training opportunities that will equip health leaders to run We Can! in their communities. We Can! is a science-based, national education program that provides parents, caregivers and communities with tools and strategies to help families improve food choices, increase physical activity and reduce screen time.
We Can! offers two core curricula:
- The Energize Our Families: Parent Program is a multiple-session curriculum designed to provide parents and caregivers with the knowledge and skills they need, along with practical tools, to help families maintain a healthy weight. Specific topics include shopping for healthy food on a budget, controlling portion sizes, increasing physical activity in youth and reducing family screen time.
- Media Smart Youth: Eat, Think and Be Active! is an after-school program designed to help young people ages 11 to 13 understand the connections between media and health and to help youth build media analysis and production skills. The program uses nutrition and physical activity examples to help youth think critically about how media influences the choices they make.
This Saturday's webinar will focus on the "Energize Our Families: Parent Program." To register for a future We Can! webinar, please go to: http://www.hhs.gov/partnerships/letsmove.
We look forward to hearing from many of you on Saturday and on future webinars!
Sincerely,The Let's Move Faith and Communities Team
