 Pinch of Prevention

A Pinch of Prevention is designed especially for PTAs, churches and other community organizations serving children and families.  It is a quick and easy way for a PTA president, parent or community leader to present action-oriented health and safety messages to a captive audience such as at a PTA or regular community meeting.  This program is a series of modules on various health topics that each include: 

  • a short 5-7 min. pre-scripted PowerPoint presentation
  • newsletter articlePOP_CoverArt.png
  • list of resources
  • handouts and flyers that you can give to meeting attendees
