The Partnership Center News: New We Can! Webinar Trainings with Let's Move Faith and CommunitiesU.S. Dept. of Health & Human Services sent this bulletin at 08/21/2013 02:10 PM EDT Dear Partners,
Let’s Move Faith and Communities invites you to join us this fall for webinar trainings on the National Institutes of Health’s We Can! (Ways to Enhance Children’s Activity & Nutrition)® program. We Can! is a national education program designed to provide families, caregivers and communities the science-based tips, tools and strategies that they can use to help children eat right, move more and reduce screen time.
These webinar trainings equip faith and community leaders like you to use We Can! materials and resources to help families help children lead healthier lives. Each training focuses on one of the two core We Can! 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.
