GO DOUGH: SCHOOL WELLNESS FUNDS MADE SIMPLE

Thursday, December 5 1:15 PM – 2:00 PM • Kalahari Salon B
Abby Rose, Duncan Van Dusen, CATCH Global Foundation

OAHPERD has teamed up with CATCH Global Foundation to make it simpler for Ohio schools to raise and spend funds to support their wellness efforts. Let’s face it, most districts and schools do not provide much if any funding for PE and Wellness activities in schools. Need to replenish your equipment closet, dreaming of installing a climbing wall, want to attend a professional development conference, want to contribute to a health and wellness charity aligned with your school community? “GO Dough” empowers your school to raise funds online and spend those dollars on whatever wellness needs or initiatives you see fit. No limited catalogues of equipment to choose from. No restrictive vendor lists. No red tape. Session participants will learn how to use the GO Dough platform to fund their wellness program budget while helping to support OAHPERD.

Abby Rose, Duncan Van Dusen, CATCH Global Foundation

In 2018, the number of youth using E-cigarettes increased by 78% for high school students and %48 for middle school students. CATCH My Breath was developed as a rapid response to this ongoing epidemic by The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UT Health) School of Public Health. This session will describe the rise of E-cigarettes as a public health crisis for our youth and provide participants with information about CATCH My Breath, the best-practice, youth E-cigarette and JUUL prevention program which delivers up-to-date information to teachers, parents, and health professionals to equip students with the knowledge and skills they need to make informed decisions about the use of E-cigarettes, including JUUL devices. CATCH My Breath utilizes a peer-led teaching approach and meets National and State Health Education Standards. And best of all, It’s FREE!!
