Shared-use agreements allow community members to use school facilities like playgrounds and fields after school hours to be active. But implementing them requires close coordination between schools and their communities and can be tricky.
PreventObesity.net is hosting a webinar on May 17 from 2:00 - 2:50pm EDT (11:00 - 11:50 PDT) to explain shared-use agreements, offer tips for reaching out to schools and governments to create them and provide help with navigating local laws and regulations to craft them.
Manal Aboelata from Prevention Institute will join PreventObesity.net's Rebecca Frank to moderate the webinar. Scheduled speakers include Dr. John Spengler from the University of Florida, Dr. Jamie Chriqui from the University of Illinois at Chicago and Genoveva Islas-Hooker of the The Central California Regional Obesity Prevention Program.
