Join Healthy Central Florida for our 4th annual Health Innovation Grants Workshop on May 11th. Attend the free workshop and your organization could be eligible to receive one of the mini-grants totaling $25,000. Plus, you’ll hear from national experts and learn about cutting-edge strategies to make your workplace, school, church or community healthier.
|This year’s workshop will primarily focus on two areas:
Jeff Speck is a city planner and urban designer who advocates internationally for smart growth and sustainable design. Jeff is one of the leading voices in America on how walking and walkability can improve health, economic vitality, social connections and safety in our cities. He is the author of Walkable City: How Downtown Can Save America, One Step at a Time. He has had a profound impact on audiences everywhere in delivering the message that “walkability is the key to thriving cities.”
Dr. Brian Wansink’s award-winning academic research on eating behavior, behavioral economics and behavior change has been published in the world’s top marketing, medical and nutrition journals. It contributed to the introduction of smaller “100 calorie” packages (to prevent overeating) and other creative strategies to nudge us to make healthier choices. His research-tested strategies can help us all make our food environments healthier and more supportive of healthy choices. His message is critical for leaders in workplaces, schools, municipalities, churches and restaurants – anyplace that serves food. That includes your home!
