Dr. Gonzalez to Present at the 136th APHA Annual Meeting & Exposition

In 2005 Hand In Hand (HIH) and FIPP were awarded funding through the Missouri Foundation for Health's Healthy and Active Communities Initiative to improve nutrition and physical activity. Their program, Vitality, Vim and Vigor for Life (3Vs), has since conducted numerous activities to fight obesity among participants.

 

Throughout their program, 3Vs has established over 70 partnerships in the community and reached hundreds of individuals. This session will focus on the successful use of lay health leaders/promoters and existing community programs to deliver a cultural sensitive program. Evaluation outcomes and lessons learned will also be shared.

 

Congratulations to Dr. Gonzalez for this wonderful opportunity!
