Lead members from each of the 16 communities in the PHC statewide initiative, called coaches, will attend a Coaches Meeting in September 2009 in Washington, D.C., and learn methods and strategies for building and facilitating community leadership teams. Complete leadership teams from all 16 communities will then return to Washington, D.C. in February 2010 for a conference at which they will learn strategies for policy and environmental change from the nation's leading experts in physical activity, nutrition and building healthy environments.
