Jackson, Miss. – The Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) is offering training in BodyWorks, a program designed to help parents and caregivers of children ages nine to 13 improve family eating and activity habits.
Participants completing the six-hour “train the trainer” session will be able to organize and teach a 10-week series of classes to parents and other caregivers in their own communities. The series of classes will include ways to help teach children and families to maintain a healthy weight and incorporate physical activity daily.
Health educators at the state, community or health system level, community and church leaders, school nurses, Girl and Boy Scout leaders, worksite wellness program coordinators and others interested in becoming BodyWorks trainers should make plans to attend.
There are eight sessions available: January 15, January 23, February 10, March 11, March 19, April 16, May 13 and June 11. All training sessions will be held at the MSDH Central Office, located at 570 East Woodrow Wilson Drive in Jackson. BodyWorks training is free, but seating is limited and registration is required.
