New California Health Education Framework Professional Learning (*$500 stipend for participation and no charge to register!) 

Join us for a four part CA Health Education Professional Learning Session introducing the new 2019 California Health Education Framework.  The Framework offers up to date, relevant guidance on the Why, What, and How of teaching comprehensive health education in grades K-12.  Research clearly demonstrates that healthy students are better learners.  Now more than ever, we have a responsibility to improve the health literacy of our students so they can lead healthy lives that support their learning now, as well as ensure they are college, career, and life ready.  

Health Education builds the knowledge and the skills of students around positive physical and mental health behaviors, healthy social emotional skills, as well as evidence-based trauma healing and stress reduction strategies. 

Health Education content includes: nutrition & physical activity; growth, development, & sexual health; violence prevention & safety; tobacco & substance use prevention; mental & social emotional health; and personal & community health  

Audience: Teachers, Instructional Aides, Para-educators, School Nurses, Counselors, and Administrators supporting health education, Community Health Educators working in schools

HCOE Registration Link: access to the online course and virtual meeting will be shared after your registration is confirmed.
