Teens Invited to Make a Difference in Community Health

Cornell Cooperative Extension and 4-H of Warren County and Washington County invite teens to join the 4-H Choose Health program and make a difference in their communities! “The Choose Health program came out of a concern that many children have habits that could lead to health issues and chronic disease either in childhood, or as they become adults,” explains Abby Henderson, a 4-H Community Educator. “We want all kids to learn healthier habits and have fun along the way!” 

Teens have the unique opportunity to help fight this growing concern by becoming 4-H “Choose Health Action Teens”, or CHATs. CHATs will receive training in healthy food choices and active living, and then use those skills to teach healthy habits to younger children.
