A relatively new network, the Indiana SNAC had its first meeting in the summer of 2019. The COVID-19 pandemic slowed efforts after the launch of the group. However, we have big plans for 2023, as we look forward to the creation of strategic plans and action plans.
SNAC 2023 Goals
- Goal 1: The Indiana SNAC will continue offer monthly newsletters, quarterly meetings, 2 student networking events, and a social media presence to maintain member engagement.
- Goal 2: In 2023, SNAC will offer 10 webinars to promote education and peer learning about topics of interest indicated the the 2022 evaluation and dialogue session reports.
- Goal 3: In 2023, SNAC leaders will work with an external evaluator to determine strategic priorities and direction for the group and SNAP-Ed in the coming years.

Twelve dialogue sessions were held in 2022. The goal of these sessions was to provide a space each month for public health professionals to gather and discuss their experiences with a variety of topics that affect food access and safe physical activity environments. You can view the recordings and resources shared at each session at the bottom of this page.
