The Coastal Health District Chronic Disease Prevention Program will host a School Health Summit from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. May 31, at the Liberty County Schools Performing Arts Center.

The free, one-day training is being offered to administrators, teachers, nutrition directors and principals to develop nutrition and physical activity policies and to offer resources to help prevent chronic disease in kids.

"Obesity continues to be a real problem in children of all ages and unhealthy habits developed early translate into unhealthy habits later in life," said the district’s Chronic Disease Prevention Director Cristina Gibson. "The Summit is a way for school leaders to learn about tools that can help promote better health in students."
