Short Description
The Office of Women’s Health and Family Services will be offering two mini-grant model programs during fiscal year 2018. These grants will be for six months (January 1, 2018 through June 30, 2018).

The two programs are Heart Smart for Teens and Life Smart for Women.

• Heart Smart for Teens is a nine-week program educates adolescent girls (primarily targeting fifth through ninth grades) on risk factors of cardiovascular disease and teaches them the importance of a healthy diet and physical activity. Each session of the curriculum contains an educational lesson, a physical activity and a healthy snack.



• Life Smart for Women is a 10-week (one session/week) curriculum that is appropriate to a widely diverse audience of women who will meet in small groups of approximately 15-20 people. The curriculum was developed based on principles of adult learning such as focusing on topics that are highly relevant to the participants and providing information and skill-building learning experiences that are transferable to the participants’ personal, family and professional lives. Learning strategies include active learning, discussion, screenings, and skill-building.
