If you are currently relying on a “day-to-day” lesson strategy in your physical education classroom or are looking to update your existing PE curriculum, this series of five individual e-courses is for you!
This is an outline of a webinar from ReFED, an organization dedicate to reducing food waste, on how to use their Innovator Database in dealing with excess food. The tool tells you who in your area to connect with that will use excess food. Their policy finder also allows you to see various policies dealing with excess waste across the country, which you can propose to your own local governments.
Building Healthier Communities: Integrating Public Health into Planning is a free online learning course for planning and health professionals. Designed to complement the American Planning Association’s Planners4Health curriculum, the course outlines what planners and public health professionals need to know and how they can connect their work.
One of the goals of the NYS Prevention Agenda is to promote attention to the health implications of policies and actions that occur outside of the health sector, including transportation and public safety. Complete streets policies create safer and smarter multi-modal transportation networks for all pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit users of all ages and abilities. Complete streets policies are ultimately geared towards promoting healthy lifestyles. Learn how two New York communities have used public awareness campaigns to encourage their residents to use walking and biking facilities or trail networks that have been established as a result of complete streets projects.
Complete streets policies create safer and smarter multi-modal transportation networks for all pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit users of all ages and abilities. New and existing funding sources can be accessed to help communities make their complete streets projects become a reality. Learn how to take concrete steps that build momentum and a track record, while simultaneously helping the community become more competitive for state and federal funding opportunities. In New York, there are good examples of rural, suburban and urban municipalities that have successfully identified and acted on low-cost solutions to advance their complete streets policies and projects. For larger infrastructure projects, communities have a variety of local, state and federal funding options. Communities should be careful to consider the costs and benefits of these funding options, including the costs of grant-writing, the importance of community buy-in and the difficulties of administering a federal-aid project.
The value of a complete streets initiative can be demonstrated through program evaluation. Creating a systematic and meaningful evaluation approach requires a step by step process. The purpose of this webinar is to provide participants with the skills to plan and execute an evaluation of a Complete Streets Public Health Intervention which addresses Prevention Agenda Performance Measures.
Complete streets policies can create safer and smarter multi-modal environments for all pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit users of all ages and abilities. The right kind of data can be an essential element to planning, implementing, and evaluating projects. This one-hour webinar will provide information on how to access and use national, state, county, and street-level data on motor vehicle traffic, bicycle, and pedestrian use, injuries, hospitalizations, and fatalities.
In this training, presenters from education and health discuss school nutrition and academic achievement, the changes brought by the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, and the expanded options for providing school meals.
In this training, presenters discuss how schools can develop, implement, and evaluate a Comprehensive School Physical Activity Program (CSPAP), and give examples of how one New York school district has successfully implemented components of a CSPAP.
This webinar brings together the stories of the formation and first year of three different, successful food hubs. Presenters share some of the best and worst decisions they made, including: what types of contacts they felt really helped their business to thrive; how much money they needed and where they got it; and others.
