Michele, Helen and Robyn are getting ready to present  a workshop at the FRP Canada Conference in Hamilton Ontario on March 11, 2015. Hope to see some of you there!

Healthy Together: An Innovative Family Education Model for Children (0‐18y) and Their Families

Core values, principles, lessons learned and details on facilitation and implementation of Healthy Together in your community

The session will describe key findings from Phase I and II of the Healthy Weights for Children Project, and provide details on Healthy Together© program. This innovative program comprises of three age based modules (0‐6y, 7‐12y, 13‐18y) featuring themes such as food and nutrition, physical activity, community and relationships. Delegates will engage in group learning activities, to acquire knowledge about program implementation strategies, resources, and supports necessary for implementing Healthy Together in their community. The session will be interactive in nature, and will allow for opportunities for hands‐on learning experiences. We hope that through this session, delegates will have an increased understanding of group facilitation skills and learning within health promoting practices. By integrating Healthy Together in core population health and family support services across Canada, we hope to increase the probability that vulnerable children and youth will experience greater equality of health outcomes in our country.
