PP4H Member Lorenzo Weber awarded the Burning Bush Leadership Award from the Coalition for Spiritual and Public Leadership (CSPL)
Quote from the award ceremony: "CSPL choose to recognize Lorenzo because he has meant a great deal to CSPL and our growth over the past two years, in particular through our collaboration with PP4H, which he represents. In particular, his work to support the efforts of parents and community residents on the Smart Routes campaign was inspirational. Lorenzo is clearly someone who is driven and motivated by his deep and abiding faith."
Thank you for all your work Mr. Weber!
Loyola University Chicago dietetic interns participated in the Illinois Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Advocacy Day at the State Capital on April 10. They ask for support on legislation that improve nutrition standards for child care centers (HB 196) and improve access to telehealth services (SB 27) , including nutrition. Both of these will improve community health through better nutrition.
Dr. Joanne Kouba, Loyola faculty and Proviso East High School School-based Health Center dietician, led the student group. Dr. Kouba has been involved in the PP4H Proviso East Wellness committee.
