Hi, I'm a Registered Dietitian and work with the Iowa 4-H Youth Development program to integrate programming for K-12 audiences to learn how to live a healthier lifestyle. We offer programs around social, emotional, physical, and financial well-being in a variety of delivery modes including schools, afterschool programs, summer camps and 4-H club settings. As part of our 4-H Healthy Living program, we have a program focused on grades 4-8 for schools called SWITCH which helps students explore how they can "Switch what they Do, View and Chew". If you are interested in school wellness initiatives or learning how to collaborate with students as a partner in addressing a health initiative in your school or community I would love to chat more about your efforts and if 4-H can support your goals!
