FREE Training Opportunity -- Creating Healthy, INCLUSIVE Communities

Inclusive communities provide individuals with disabilities equal access to, and opportunities for healthy living. This can be achieved by implementing policy, systems, and environmental changes that increase access to physical activity, healthful food and healthy weight management initiatives. 

Workshop highlights:

  • Learn about Inclusive Health
  • Talk directly with state and national experts who will explain how to take advantage of resources and funding
  • Walk & roll away with tools and inspiration to get started quickly

Audience: Community teams of 2-3 members working to make their communities vibrant, healthy and inclusive
