CATCH Healthy Habits Program Teaches Kids to Live Healthy Lifestyles

| February 1, 2013

A popular health-oriented program for children is coming to Tucson this summer.

CATCH is a national program of the OASIS institute and will be led locally by Tucson OASIS, located near River and Campbell. The CATCH program teams OASIS members, a 50+ adult community of people interested in lifelong learning and service, with kids to teach proper nutrition and active lifestyle habits as outlined in the CATCH evidence-based program.

David Eppihimer, Executive Director of the Tucson OASIS branch, tells me that CATCH will pilot this summer with 30-40 kids participating. Tucson OASIS is currently seeking a well qualified part-time program coordinator (download the job posting here PDF) and will also be looking for active adults to mentor kids in the program. For more information on the program, visit the CATCH Healthy Habits webpage.
