Practicum in Health Promotion at UVA

I have a flyer for this if anyone is interested: 

A local project, Move2Health, is looking for exercise physiology students to assist with a project as part of a practicum experience or simply on a volunteer basis. The Move2Health point person, Elizabeth Beasley (copied here), is looking for volunteers to review the “Move” portion of the Move2Health website ( My dietetic interns will be reviewing the “Eat” section, likely using the attached instruction sheet as a guide.
If you know of any people who may be willing to review the Move section, please reach out to Elizabeth. Tiffany Neal (also copied here) is also assisting with this project.
