State Conference: Inspire '18

November 4-6, 2018

A person's best work is often the result of nudges. Parents, coaches, teachers, colleagues, friends, inspirational leaders, and others are often the ones who bring out the best in us. The difference between doubt and action is often the subtle, perhaps imperceptible, encouragement and affirmation of a respectful nudge.
Here's your nudge.
INSHAPE Inspire '18 - two November days at Grand Park - offers you the opportunity to soak in everything that is good about health and physical education. What you need to know:

Reconnect. Re-energize. Get Inspired! See you at Grand Park!

Nowhere to Go But Up

PE Advocates Tip the Scales

Louisiana is the highest-ranked state for both childhood and adult obesity. While that grim statistic might seem to be reason enough to ensure funding for robust health and physical education (HPE) programs in Louisiana schools, Bonnie Richardson knew from experience that it wasn’t that simple. The only way to keep the state’s students active was to be an activist herself.
