Wyoming SNAP Team members include the Wyoming Department of Education, Team Nutrition, Wyoming Department of Health, Wyoming Women, Infants and Children Program, University of Wyoming Cent$ible Nutrition Program, Indian Health Services, and Wyoming Department of Family Services. The Wyoming Area Health Education Center (AHEC) and the University of Wyoming College of Health Sciences provided funding for the project.
The purpose of the project is to communicate consistent nutrition messages through multiple channels in order to reduce the risk of overweight and obesity in Wyoming.
The bulletin boards can be used in a variety of community settings to convey nutrition and physical activity messages. All the graphics, handouts, activities and background information are provided for 8 bulletin boards. The bulletin boards can be displayed each month or used as needed.
