Notes from panel prep:

  • funding is the primary challenge
  • ideas on finding ways to engergize businesses around funding physical education programs.
  • Online learning is a powerul tool to get knowledge to those who needit.
  • telemedicine has practical use in delivering expertise where it wouldn't be available
  • Georgia SHAPE focus 60% of it's efforts on schools
  • One of the challenges with corporate funding is setting expecations.  Their time frame for ROI is shorter than is realistic in changing habits and seeing results.
  • It's helpful for organizations to expect a 3-5 year ROI
  • HealthMpowers is delivering nutrition content
  • there are inequities in schools.  some schools only have one piece of equipment.
  • Sell Peak performance, instead of wellness
