Step Up Your HEPA Game at NAA17

Did you know that The National Afterschool Association is a great resource for professional development supporting healthy eating and physical activity (HEPA) in afterschool? A recent survey of the Afterschool Today magazine readers listed NAA as a place to get valuable resources and information to improve HEPA offerings and teaching practices.

This year, NAA's Annual Convention, the premier learning, networking, and professional development event for the field of afterschool will feature 25+ dedicated HEPA workshops, group training workouts, and a learning expo with exhibitors sharing HEPA products and services, and more!

Past Convention participants who attended HEPA-related workshops indicated:

  • an increased knowledge on how to access HEPA resources
  • increased confidence in delivery of HEPA experiences
  • increased confidence in communicating with schools, families, and communities about the importance of HEPA in Out-of-School time.

If you work in the afterschool field and have a passion for HEPA—you don't want to miss this event! Visit for more information and register to step up your HEPA game today!
