“Preventing Childhood Obesity: An Ecological Approach”
This 6-week in-depth course helps participants use an ecological approach to identify underlying causes of childhood obesity and develop an action plan for intervention in their communities. A facilitator interacts with participants throughout the course. The cost is $150 and the course provides 15 CPEUs.
The next and final session is scheduled for February 6 - March 19, 2013. Our priority audience for this course is county-based teams that consist of at least three people who represent extension nutrition, 4-H/youth development and the community. To encourage teams with this composition to enroll, we offer a reduced enrollment fee. Teams that fit these criteria will be given priority enrollment. Other teams and individuals will be accepted in the course on a space available basis.
Please note: it is uncertain when, or even if, this course will be offered again.
Those interested in the special team opportunity should contact Christina Stark, at firstname.lastname@example.org , to obtain permission from the facilitator and information on how to register. This special opportunity is being made possible through an Agriculture and Food Research Initiative (AFRI) grant from USDA.
