Let’s Move Faith and Communities invites you to join us this coming Wednesday, December 11th from 1-3pm EST for a webinar training that will equip health leaders to run the "Energize Our Families: Parent Program" in their communities. The Parent Program is part of We Can! (Ways to Enhance Children's Activity & Nutrition)®, a science-based national education program from the National Institutes of Health that provides parents, caregivers and communities with tools and strategies to help families improve food choices, increase physical activity and reduce screen time.

The Parent Program is designed to provide parents and caregivers with the knowledge and skills they need 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.
We also invite you to join us on Thursday, December 19th from 1-3pm EST for a webinar training on another We Can! curriculum, “Media-Smart Youth®: Eat, Think and Be Active!” Media-Smart Youth 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.
