Innovative Community Partnerships for Chronic Disease Prevention: WIC & Head Start
By San Juan Basin Public Health
San Juan Basin Public Health (SJBPH) presented this poster at the NWA Annual Conference in April 2017 as part of the CPHMC project. This project highlighted their local work promoting community partnerships with Head Start.
San Juan Basin Public Health’s (SJBPH) grant work focused on increased access to healthy foods and building a strong referral network. Efforts to increase access to healthy foods were very collaborative and included: introduction of free farm stands during the local growing season and on-site placement and promotion strategies for healthy foods at the local Head Start centers through facilitation of their implementation of the CATCH curriculum, monthly taste test lessons, and new preschool gardens. SJBPH also worked to build a strong referral network and used media and outreach to promote the WIC program and other chronic-disease prevention community resources.
