Healthy Bytes Initiative

The Healthy Bytes Initiative is a nutrition education campaign started in 2017 that highlights one healthy food per month. Education materials include posters, table tents, 2-sided handouts with recipes, a short article for newsletters or eblasts, and 8-10 PowerPoint slides for lobbies or waiting rooms. Content is developed by a Registered Dietitian with Oregon State University Extension Service and available for free download by clicking HERE.

This subcommittee works, in part, to encourage physical activity in the community.  We are supporting a physical activity program through Oregon State University Extension called Walk with Ease.

If you’re interested in learning more about how to implement the program at your site, please contact the local Walk With Ease Program Coordinator.  You can also enroll in the self-directed program online through OSU Extension.  Once you register, you will receive a free guidebook and weekly coaching emails throughout the six-week program.
