Arrowhead United Way Works to Produce Healthier Communities
San Bernardino, CA—Arrowhead United Way’s (AUW) Community Health Awareness program offers free health education courses on proper nutrition and obesity prevention. Workshop participants learn about basic nutrition, how to read a food label, how to shop for inexpensive healthy food, how to make healthy choices when eating out, and physical activity among other important information. The Community Health Awareness program aligns with one of United Way’s three major goals: to increase, by one-third, the number of youth and adults who are healthy and avoid risky behaviors. The program sponsored by Kaiser Permanente and the workshops are conducted by Loma Linda University, School of Public Health students.
