Poe Center's New Healthy Texts

Green has been partnering with the Poe Center for Health Education, here in Raleigh, throughout the school year. They recently made us aware of an opportunity you may be interested in.

Poe is now offering a nutrition and physical activity text-messaging program for families called Text to Live Healthy.  Research shows that texting is one of the best ways to reach the families and this is a proven program. Beginning in November 2020, the Poe Center will send you no more than 2-3 texts per week with helpful tips on nutritious recipes, simple exercises, and other information on keeping your family fit.

Text messages will be available in English or Spanish. Registration is free, but the user’s standard data usage charges may apply. You may unsubscribe at any point. Contact information will not be shared with any other parties.

Join us in the effort to keep Green families healthy and fit. Our goal is to have 500 families register for this program. Let’s work together to reach this goal!
