Training the Trainers:
HealthCorps University is train-the-trainer professional development program that empowers participants to bring HealthCorps’ curriculum to their organization, whether it’s a school system, community group or corporation.
Like the Living Labs, HCU is rooted in the three pillars of the HealthCorps’ curriculum: nutrition, fitness and mental resilience. This model is scalable and impactful providing the participant with simple messaging that prioritizes healthy living. Utilizing the HealthCorps curriculum, which is aligned to National Health Education Standards, creates a strong foundation from which HCU trainees are provided turnkey skills and concepts to integrate the HealthCorps curriculum into their current programming.
The Elements of a HealthCorps University
