Advancing Equity in Children’s Health: New Messaging Resource!


The Afterschool Alliance has released an Out-of-School Time (OST) Health Equity Messaging Resource which is to be used in conjunction with the Voices for Healthy Kids Messaging Guide. The OST Health Equity Messaging Resource is intended to be used by advocates dedicated to advancing state-level policy solutions and supporting the implementation of the National AfterSchool Association’s Healthy Eating and Physical Activity (HEPA) Standards in order to increase overall program quality. Specifically, this resource provides talking points, tips, and guidance on articulating a health equity argument in support of HEPA standards.
