Join LiveWell Garfield County and Action for Healthy Kids for a parent leadership workshop on creating healthier schools, Partnering for School Wellness: What Parents Need to Know.

Learn how to work collaboratively to improve school policy and practices related to healthy eating and physical activity; learn about state and national regulations and resources to support your efforts; learn how to turn a school wellness project into a community effort that has a lasting impact on kids and families; and come away armed with project ideas and resources to get started.

Training topics will be Making the Case for Healthy Schools, The School Health Landscape, Best Practices in Nutrition and Physical Activity, and Engaging Your School Community.

The workshop is free to all interested parents and includes complimentary dinner and child care for ages 2-12 provided by LiveWell Garfield County.

Material is presented in English with interpretation into Spanish.

The workshop is offered in Rifle on Feb. 23 and Glenwood on Feb. 24, though training content is the same for both workshops. Registration is required. Register online or RSVP to Dana Wood, LiveWell Garfield County coordinator, at 970-625-5200, ext. 8121, or

Action for Healthy Kids partners with teachers, students, moms, dads, school wellness experts and many others to fight childhood obesity, undernourishment and physical inactivity by helping schools become healthier places. Learn more at
