South Dakota program featured on National Institute of Health webpage

The statewide We Can! training effort provided through the department’s Child and Adult Nutrition Services last year has earned South Dakota some positive recognition.

An article about South Dakota’s We Can! program was recently featured on the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute’s website. The program received funding assistance from the USDA’s Team Nutrition program, and teams from 17 schools attended the training to learn how they could use the We Can! curriculum to improve existing programs.
