The Virginia Department of Health's Division of Prevention and Health Promotion is pleased to announce a series of community development, chronic disease prevention, and health promotion presentations and trainings entitled "Building a Wealth of Community Health" in March 2013.
"Building a Wealth of Community Health" is a collaborative effort among the Virginia Department of Health's Tobacco Use Control, Healthy Eating/Active Living, Healthy Communities, and Diabetes Prevention and Control Projects. Each training seminar is a one-day event featuring speakers from national, state, and local health organizations. Attendees may include: local and state coalition members, local health district staff, school personnel, community planners, and other partners.
The goal is to provide resources and enhance skills to facilitate implementation of evidence-based strategies in community health promotion and chronic disease prevention. The training is packed with dynamic presentations and round-table discussions to equip attendees with the tools they need to implement evidence-based initiatives and programs in their communities.
The trainings will be held on three dates in different locations so as to accommodate our partners all across Virginia:
