  1. I would like to send at least 3 staff to the AR Coalition for Obesity Prevention and would like to apply for one scholarship. Please send me the scholarship guidelines and application. Thank you.

  2. I am interested in attending the meeting with Iris Crosby of East Arkansas Enterprise Community. I would like the $20.00 scholarship to pay for registration and the other items it covers. Thank you.

  2. […] UPDATE: Team roles have been updated, decreasing the required number of Health & Wellness Professionals to two and adding one required Education Professional. In response to this change, those communities in attendance will be eligible for a special Joint Use Agreement Grant release from the Arkansas Department of Education to compete for funds to support the implementation of a joint use project in your community.  Those communities who submit proposals for the special release with only compete with other “Digging Deeper” Immersion Training participants, rather than statewide. For more information about the State’s Joint Use Agreement Grant program visit their website. Joint Use Agreement training will also be made available during ArCOP’s 2014 Growing Healthy Communities Regional Summits. […]
