BodyWorks program leaders come from many backgrounds: health educators, doctors, community or faith-based leaders, school nurses, graduate students, work-site wellness program coordinators, promotoras, and many, many others. Experience facilitating groups and a commitment to improving the health of families in your community are the most important requirements.
We offer a variety of resources for program leaders to help plan your program and spread the word.
Watch this video to understand the 2013 updates made to the BodyWorks curriculum and toolkit materials.
Current BodyWorks program leaders offer their advice on recruiting for your program, engaging participants, keeping families interested, and much more.
Toolkits are available for download in English and Spanish. You can also order hard copies of the Spanish toolkit, as well as limited pieces of the English toolkit.
BodyWorks is moving into a new phase! The Office on Women's Health will no longer maintain the BodyWorks program after December 2016.
This doesn't mean BodyWorks must end. We encourage you to continue (or begin) leading programs in your communities.
The BodyWorks toolkit materials will remain on womenshealth.gov for you to view and download until Friday, December 30, 2016. If you would like to print them professionally, please email email@example.com to request the design files.
