Training for Staff Who Support Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities
Online
Dates:
6/25/2013 2:00 PM 3:00 PM
Obesity is a public health epidemic, and the crisis is worse for people with disabilities, who are 58% more likely to be obese than people without disabilities. To address this problem Hennepin County Human Services and Public Health Department developed Wellness for Every Body (WFEB), an online training program for direct service providers. WFEB uses an environmental approach that targets adult care homes for intervention and creates conditions that establish healthy living as the norm. In 2013, Wellness for Every Body was recognized as a Promising Practice by the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) Model and Promising Practices Program. Join NACCHO and Hennepin County Public Health to learn about this program and how you can use it in your jurisdiction.
