HPW Student Internship Experience – Alecia Ahrens Spring 17′

At the expos, I promoted It’s Time Texas and the health benefitting resources it provides for the community. As an instructor for the Teach Healthier after-school program, I implemented nutrition and physical activity lessons for children of Brown Allan Elementary and surrounding Austin ISD schools.
