HEPA Afterschool: Lead the Charge at NAA18!

Did you know that the National AfterSchool Association is a great resource for professional development supporting healthy eating and physical activity (HEPA) in afterschool?

The NAA 2018 Annual Convention—taking place in Atlanta, March 18 – 21, 2018—will feature more than 25 dedicated HEPA workshops, group fitness sessions, a learning expo with exhibitors sharing HEPA products and services, and more!

When surveyed, past Convention participants who attended HEPA-related workshops indicated:

  • 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.

People with a passion for HEPA and how it impacts youth in afterschool are encouraged to join us! NAA18's theme is Lead the Charge: Be Bold. Be Brave. Be Brilliant.

Lead the charge for HEPA in afterschool by attending!
