Education and Training
A training team has been formed consisting of the Indiana State Department of Health, the Department of Education, Family and Social Services Administration, and Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports. Several trainings have been provided statewide to business groups, legislators, and service providers.
We are in the process of forming a training panel, which will focus on community-based models. The purpose is to train and facilitate local communities with successful community-based practices. The following are links to PowerPoint slide shows, which may be useful for training or educational purposes:
