Lay Health Educator Manual (PDF)
This 64-page lay health educator manual was developed the MaineGeneral Health Move More program. The Move More program focuses specifically on advocating for physical activity including encouraging people to be active and increasing the availability of community resources for physical activity in this rural, cold weather setting.
This manual is designed to be a guide for implementing lay health educator interventions and training educators for settings and program models similar to Maine's Move More project. The manual includes policies and procedures, change models of particular importance, sample forms, and information about exercise. Specifics should be tailored to your own site.
