Volunteer Health Educators for Healthy Body, Healthy Soul

So Others Might Eat (SOME) is in search of enthusiastic volunteer Health Educators to facilitate its Healthy Body, Healthy Soul program, an interactive 10-week program that integrates lessons on nutrition, physical activity, and mindfulness. In each session, participants will engage in light physical activity, short meditations, and learn to cook healthy meals.
