Stay tuned for detailed information on updates, training, and new features that will be introduced in the upcoming round!

HAPp Team Presents at the National Health Outreach Conference:

Earlier this month the HAPp team had the honor of presenting at the National Health Outreach Conference in Greenville, SC. The presentation focused on the innovative approaches and successes of the HAPp program, demonstrating how it can be adopted by Extension educators and public health professionals in various communities. The response was positive, with several attendees expressing interest in implementing similar initiatives in their own regions. This success is a testament to the dedication and hard work of our HAPp Agents, whose commitment to promoting health and wellness through community engagement and collaboration has made the program what it is today. We are excited about the potential for broader adoption of the HAPp program nationwide.
