How can I get involved?
To implement the full campaign at your installation or in your community, you will need a Point of Contact, or POC.
The Point of Contact, or POC, is responsible for implementing the campaign throughout his or her installation or community. This person should have a great interest in health promotion, and have access to places families frequently visit. The POC will complete training and receive certification and a guide to help him or her implement the campaign throughout his or her installation or community.
