SUMNER COUNTY, Colo. – The Colorado Department of Public Health announced an initiative Tuesday to educate 한게임 포커senior citizens on swimming.
The Swimming Education Team – which includes members of the state public health and human services departments – has a team of approximately 40 staff members, including the department’s Director of Community Affairs, which includes senior citizens, to support the project. The swimming team conducts its training and education programs at the State Parks or State Recreation locations in the county.
„The Swimming Education Team works closely with our partners at the county parks and recreation departments,“ said Chris Burden, director of human services. „Through a series of outreach events and public education, we teach our residents h포커 의 신ow to swim safely, safely and in an enj제천출장샵oyable way with the help of our community and the department staff.“
The training program will start with a 5-minute group swim at 4:30 p.m. each day. Each member will earn a one-time, $4 gift card when they sign up.
„The Swimming Education Team teaches senior citizens to swim in a fun and positive manner that is safe for the community,“ said John Martin, chair of the Colorado Health and Human Services Commission, which coordinates the department’s education work with state public health and human services programs. „This unique project demonstrates the department’s commitment to the development and strengthening of this core public health initiative.“
Swimming is a recreational activity and is highly safe, according to the American Association of Swimming and Diving. Swimming does not harm human swimmers. No injuries have been reported. Children should not participate, and parents should not allow their children to swim without a guardian.
