Seeking Applicants for Leaders in Health

Application due February 14, 2014

Leaders in Health community training program is currently seeking applications from community members who are striving to improve nutrition and physical activity in Boston and surrounding communities.

Now in its 4th year, the program’s goal is to build the capacity of our community partners by providing participants with an introduction to the fundamentals of community-based participatory research (CBPR) and nutrition, physical activity, and obesity prevention among children and youth. Individuals who are currently involved with a nutrition- or physical activity-related program or project (on either a work or volunteer basis) are eligible to apply. Participants will attend interactive training sessions, complete assignments, and receive support to create an action plan to enhance their current work.
