Last spring, Marc Zimmerman was invited to present on the importance of youth empowerment, at the Childhood Health and Nutrition Research Conference hosted together by the USDA Arkansas Children’s Nutrition Center and the National Dairy Council. He also recently published a blog post on the National Dairy Council website about empowerment theory and YES and how it can be applied in other contexts.
