Revised Sisters Together Program Guide includes community tools

STPG_cover_300ppi.jpgThe newly revised Sisters Together Program Guide can help individuals and community groups create health awareness efforts that help black women move more and eat better. Sisters Together is part of the NIDDK Weight-control Information Network . The Guide gives examples of activities and lists six steps to help develop and sustain a Sisters Together program:
  1. Getting started
  2. Finding resources in your area
  3. Setting goals
  4. Spreading the word about Sisters Together
  5. Planning activities
  6. Measuring success
The Guide offers forms, logos, sample letters and tip sheets to download and customize to print or share online with others. These resources were designed for black women ages 18 and older but individuals and groups can adapt the resources to meet their needs.
