In Ohio, the two counties are Adams and Marion.Lafferty and Lavonne McCoy, RN have been the grant’s two lead coaches since its inception. They have traveled to the CDC in Atlanta twice to present the work being accomplished in Adams County.Now in its third year, Adams County has been able to incorporate the Health Matters curriculum and exercise into all four schools and Venture Production, Inc.The grant provides funding for curriculum textbooks, as well as Zumba and Yoga classes taught by instructors from Studio 101 in West Union. The grant also covered the cost of adaptive bikes for all four country schools, the Manchester Education and Athletic Center (MEAC), and Venture Productions in West Union.Additionally, the grant paid for the installation of 10 wheelchair charging stations at seven locations across Adams County including: the fairgrounds; the courthouse; the Adams County Regional Medical Center; and the villages of Peebles, Winchester, Seaman, and Manchester. Two charging stations were also donated to Kamp Dove Tail at Rocky Fork State Park, and a tenth station was gifted to the statehouse in Columbus, making Ohio the second statehouse in the country to install a power station.“Inclusion is such a vital part of being a student in a school, a citizen in your community, and a member of any organization,” says Lafferty. “The ultimate goal is for everyone to feel like they belong and to feel comfortable in their community.”For 2019, the grant will authorize another round of the Health Matters curriculum in each of the four schools. The focus on this round is full inclusion for students with disabilities who will be participating in a regular Physical Education class alongside mainstream students with Studio 101 and a Physical Education teacher providing instruction.The class will be designed for the inclusion of students with and without disabilities to come together in a fun environment, without having to change clothes, or without worrying about playing a sport in front of their peers, according to Lafferty.“Private and charter schools have the flexibility to offer things like yoga for the entire school for the first 30 minutes, because they understand that exercise and meditation can benefit academics, and mental health,” she says. “Adams County has an opportunity to be a unique model for other school districts and to place them on the state map of innovative and inclusive schools that have ‘out of the box’ opportunities for all students.”The program will kick off in the Manchester School District in January and move to West Union High School for the fourth nine-week period of the 2018-19 school year. Peebles High School will host the inclusive model in the first nine weeks of the 2019-20 school year, followed by North Adams High School.Venture Productions will continue to go to Studio 101 for regular classes in the community inclusion model. And because more and more Venture clients are choosing to live independently, a nutritionist/dietitian will teach healthy eating and shopping practices, in addition to tips for living with diabetes.“I hope this program is well received because our health statistics are so bad in this county,” says Lafferty. “If we teach kids at a very young age how to incorporate good nutrition and exercise into their everyday schedule, it could be life changing. I think it’s very easy and very sustainable, and it will cost nothing extra.”One in five adults in the United States have some type of disability, and many people will experience a disability during their lifetime. A disability is any condition of the body or mind that makes it more difficult for the person with the condition to do certain activities and interact with the surrounding world. However, the way our cities are built and how we provide access to the places where people live, work, learn, and play can either strongly encourage or serve as a major barrier for people with disabilities to participate and be included in community life.The Reaching People with Disabilities through Healthy Communities Project bridges state disability and health efforts and community engagement by addressing physical inactivity, poor nutrition, tobacco use, and exposure through community coalitions and resources to help accelerate local improvements.
