Two great webinars on the schedule - as always - SNEB webinars are free to members to attend or replay as a recording

Listening to the Audience: Iowa Nutrition Network Social Marketing for 2012 and Beyond
December 6, 2011 | 1:00 - 2:00 p.m. EST
Free live webinar for SNEB Members - Non-member "seats" available for $25 per person

This presentation will engage participants in the social marketing process used to develop a low-fat milk campaign from the beginning as well as update a long-tested fruit and vegetable campaign (Pick a better snack and Act). Strategies, lessons learned and audience insight will be shared. The presenter will also address how social marketing is being incorporated into Iowa’s Wave 2 Models for SNAP-Ed Implementation and Evaluation Research Project. This special project will evaluate whether social marketing combined with a direct, school-based education model yields better parent outcomes than direct, school-based education alone. Webinar is sponsored by the Social Marketing Division of the Society for Nutrition Education and Behavior. | Register

Christine Hradek, MPH 
Iowa Nutrition Network , Iowa Department of Public Health

This live Webinar hosted by SNEB in conjunction with the Social Marketing Division.
