The Partnership Center News: Let's Move Faith and Communities Summer Webinar Trainings on We Can!U.S. Dept. of Health & Human Services sent this bulletin at 07/16/2013 05:28 PM EDT Dear Partners,
We invite you to join Let’s Move Faith and Communities tomorrow - Wednesday, July 17th at 1pm Eastern - for the next webinar training on the National Institutes of Health's We Can! (Ways to Enhance Children's Activity & Nutrition)® program.
This summer, Let's Move Faith and Communities is teaming up with We Can! for 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.
