Federal grant to help health department
DeKALB – On a day when the DeKalb County Board of Health saw reductions in its proposed budget for next year, the announcement of a six-figure federal grant was welcome news.
Nancy LaCursia, school health coordinator for the DeKalb County Health Department, presented an overview of how a $112,000 We Choose Health grant would help bolster school nutrition efforts in the county during the Board of Health meeting Thursday.
The grant will work in conjunction with existing programs such as Pioneering Healthier Communities and help establish and expand wellness teams at county schools such as DeKalb School District 428, which is the first district that will be targeted with the grant.
