Projects include working with the Utah PTA to promote wellness in the Utah school system through trainings, webinars and exhibits; serving as the school work group for the Utah Department of Health "Physical Activity, Nutrition, and Obesity (PANO) Program;" working collaboratively with Utah "Fuel Up To Play 60" and "Gold Medal Schools;" promoting nutrition education and phyiscal activity by working with the Child Nutrition Program and Utah Department of Education.
In the years to come, the Utah team will be focusing on:
There are many opportunities to get involved with Action for Healthy Kids in Utah--from becoming a team member, to attending Action for Healthy Kids’ events, to making a financial contribution--you can help create a safer environment for our kids!
