Thanks to an amazing partnership with Community HealthCorps in Boston, we led a Local Leaders on-site training with HealthCorps members who are currently stationed at community health centers around the city. Held at Curtis Hall in Jamaica Plain, this training immersed participants in CBP’s unique experiential education model. We confronted issues including common food allergies, cooking for everyone, healthy substitutions, and of course — HEALTHY SNACKS! All of the participants were empowered by the training to return to their community health centers in order to better serve the at-risk youth they interact with who are suffering from a range of lifestyle-related diseases including obesity and diabetes.
The training was so successful that the National Association of Community Health Centers asked CBP to present to ALL of their volunteers working across the country! Fingers crossed for a future partnership at the national level —
