Extractions: during the 32nd Annual Meeting of the Society for Nutrition Education Nutrition plays a vital role in helping older adults remain healthy and independent in their communities. The Elderly Nutrition Education Coordinating Group (ENE Group) has worked together for a number of years to promote the importance of nutrition education for older adults. The symposium highlighted a broad array of nutrition related information, education, and programmatic strategies that addressed the nutritional needs of older adults and how they can be met. The symposium, moderated by ENE group representatives, Dr. Mary Clarke and Dr. Jacquelyn W. McClelland was divided into two parts: (1) the nutritional needs of older adults and (2) the array of strategies used to meet these needs. The symposium consisted of a panel presentation, oral presentations, and tabletop displays of current research and programs of researchers and educators from across the country. Abstracts and project descriptions submitted for the symposium and from which author-permission has been received are posted on this website. THE PROGRAM

Extractions: KANSAS CITY, Mo. Missouri Gov. Bob Holden said that he will not rule out authorizing the purchase of Canadian drugs in the state's prescription drug plan. Holden made the remarks Thursday during a stop at the Don Bosco Center. The governor was promoting some changes in the Missouri program to cover holes in the new federal prescription drug plan. Holden said that buying drugs across the border may be a solution. "I think there are other ways beside Canadian drugs. But I'd be willing to look at it if they are safe and it will save us money," Holden said. The governor also urged Missouri seniors to sign up for the state's prescription drug program if they're not in it already. The enrollment deadline is Feb. 28.

Comprehensive school health education is one facet of the comprehensive school health program, which includes school health services and a healthful school environment, as well as health instruction. This Digest will focus on the instructional component of the comprehensive school health program. Schools are unique among U.S. institutions in their access to children. They are a logical place to provide health information, not only to improve health in the childhood years but to prevent illness, disability, and health care costs later in life. Health education literally empowers students to avoid health risks.

Extractions: JEFFERSON CITY Gov. Bob Holden today announced a new assistance program that will work to improve the nutritional health of many lower income Missourians. Beginning in July, St. Louis City, St. Louis County and seven counties in Southeast Missouri will begin operating the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP), which provides commodity foods to supplement the diet of low-income individuals. According to Holden, Missouri is one of just 28 states to receive funding from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to provide such services. Nationally, more than 388,000 people participated in the program in 2000. "While our state and nation produce an abundance of healthy, high quality food, too many of our citizens have difficulty providing food for their families," Holden said. "This new program will go a long way in helping families by providing some of the basic necessities of a healthy diet," Holden added. The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, Division of Nutritional Health and Services, will administer the Commodity Supplemental Food Program. Under the program, the commodity foods will be offered through the St. Louis Area Food Bank and the Bootheel Food Bank at local food pantries or senior centers. Eligible participants, including low-income pregnant, breastfeeding or postpartum women up to one year after giving birth, infants and children up to their sixth birthday, and people age 60 and older, will receive a package of USDA commodity foods to help supplement their diets. The food packages include a variety of nutritious foods including cereals, grains, canned meats, fruits and vegetables, cheese, and milk products.

Extractions: Information Literacy Blog Promoting Stress Management: The Role of Comprehensive School Health Programs. ERIC Digest. by Massey, Marilyn S. Stress has been defined as, "the inability to cope with a perceived or real (or imagined) threat to one's mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being [sic] which results in a series of physiological responses and adaptations" (Seaward, 1997, p. 5). In addition to responding physiologically, people may respond cognitively and emotionally to stress. Studies indicate that 70-80% of all disease and illness is stress-related (Seaward, 1997). Stress affects each of the five dimensions of health: physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual. Examples of "distressors" (negative stressors) that children and adolescents may confront within these dimensions include: illness, injury, inadequate nutrition, and low levels of physical fitness (physical dimension); pressures to excel in academic and extracurricular activities, depression, and anxiety (mental/emotional dimension); relational issues, peer pressure, and dysfunctional family lives (social dimension); and inability to find purpose in life or to understand how individual lives contribute to a much larger and grander universe (spiritual dimension). Rather than how much stress individuals experience, the critical issue seems to be how they perceive stress and respond to it. Seaward (1997) points out that coping with stress is an ongoing process. Therefore, it is critical that children and adolescents are given opportunities to develop life skills that will help them effectively cope with daily stressors, major life events, and change. The purpose of this Digest is to examine how comprehensive school health programs may promote stress management.
