For a number of years, NYS AHPERD has been advocating with the New York State (NYS) legislature to approve a budget request, made by the commissioner of education, to fill the position of Associate in Health Education at the New York State Education Department.
This position has been vacant for 13 years causing a leadership void and the need to update the health education learning standards that are now 27 years old.
Health educators across NYS need and deserve to have the leadership the Associate in Health Education would provide.
On Thursday, March 2, 2023, NYS AHPERD is planning an advocacy THUNDERCLAP to communicate this message to our Governor and Legislature.
WE NEED AS MANY NY'ERS TO PARTICIPATE AS POSSIBLE!
Directions on how to particpate in the thunderclap can be found to the right in the detailed video, please take the time to watch it now so you are ready to participate first thing on March 2nd!
