Event Update (3/16/2020): Given current health concerns and uncertainty around coronavirus,
we have decided to postpone this School Wellness Regional Workshop. For those currently
registered, we will inform you when a new date has been determined and provide you
an opportunity to remain registered or release your spot. In light of the current
concerns, we have also decided to change the format of this workshop to a webinar.
We will continue to monitor the situation and will post updates as available. We thank you for your understanding.
WHAT: This FREE webinar will review the benefits of a strong wellness policy, USDA requirements
for the school wellness policy, and showcase best practices, and assessment and outreach
tools. The webinar will include inspiring presentations, roundtable discussions, review
of resources, networking and goal setting activities. We recommend bringing a team
(2-3) people from your school community, such as an administrator, food service director,
educator, health professional, parent or community member.
