Title: Youth Advocates for Community Health
We invite you to join us on Thursday, September 28, 2023 at 11 AM Eastern for a lightning session focused on how young people are working as catalysts for improving the health of their communities. Many states have harnessed the power of youth voice and Well Connected Communities, a health initiative funded by Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has demonstrated the effort of 4-H health ambassadors and advocates in addressing various dimensions of community health including physical activity, food insecurity, environmental health, stress and anxiety and mental health. This lightning session will also feature process guides and curricula developed for young people that are leading community change in health and well-being.
