The following self-paced, online courses are designed to meet the needs of professionals using policy, systems, and environmental (PSE) approaches to increase access to healthy food and physical activity options for low-income individuals and families:
- Making the Healthy Choice the Easy Choice – an in-depth six-module course that introduces the learner to PSEs and uses an interactive workbook to guide the learner through designing their own PSE approach in their community (learning time approximately 12 hours, up to 1 year to complete)
- An Introduction to Policy, Systems, and Environmental Approaches – the first module of the in-depth course which provides both an introduction for those new to PSE approaches and an overview for those with more experience in PSEs (learning time approximately 2 hours, up to 6 months to complete)
Both courses are designed for nutrition educators and public health professionals working collaboratively with local partners to impact local communities, including those in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed) and the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP).
