Hunger Issues: Engaging Participants for Lifelong ChangeCategory: Interventions
Julie Buck EdD, MHE, RDN, University of Idaho Extension, Bannock County
Persons with low resources, such as housing, money, healthcare and basic daily needs, may be aware of assistance in their area but are not matched to those services. Nutrition educators are located throughout most communities ready to teach. Challenges occur between communicating what type of services are available to the specific group and finding a match to those best able to teach. This session will discuss what challenges educators face in their specific locations, and provide opportunity for those persons on the webinar to share ideas with each other. Educators will be engaged in learning new ideas to program more effective with those in need. The SNEB Public Health Nutrition Division will be sponsoring this event.
1. Discuss programming challenges related to persons with low resources.
2. Identify four new ideas to create successful programming efforts.
3. Describe approaches that engage participants in life long positive health behaviors.
