Last week, the SNAP-Ed/EFNEP Southern Regional Center of Excellence in Nutrition Education and Obesity Prevention (RNECE-South) hosted the first of an ongoing series of training opportunities addressing Policy, Systems, and Environmental (PSE) Change in SNAP-Ed and EFNEP Programming. The 90-minute webinar, hosted on Monday August 17, 2015, was open to participants nationwide and featured an overview of PSE as it relates to SNAP-Ed and EFNEP guidance, specific examples of PSE strategies being used by programs in the RNECE-South region, and evaluation techniques and guidance from an expert in PSE implementation and evaluation.
The RNECE-South Center Team at University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and North Carolina State University, as well as invited speakers from the RNECE-South region (K. Shelnutt from University of Florida, L. Amaya and D. Garrard-Foster from Oklahoma State University, and S. Jilcott-Pitts from East Carolina University) would like to extend their grattitude to the 170 webinar attendees for their participation in this training opportunity.
Attendees are invited to complete the following brief online survey regarding the webinar experience. Data gathered from these surveys will help RNECE-South learn more about participants and continue to provide quality training opportunities that meet the needs of partners.
For those who were unable to attend the 17th’s online training, or who are interested in looking back at the information that was covered, the archived webinar recording and presentation slides are available on the RNECE-South website.
RNECE-South looks forward to future training events and additional opportunities for networking and collaboration between implementers, evaluators, partners, and stakeholders throughout the region and nationwide who are interested in improving nutrition education and obesity prevention through a combination of both direct education and PSE strategies in SNAP-Ed and EFNEP programs.
