PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

 

The Healthy Campus/Community Initiative began on the Coahoma County Higher Education Center campus in Clarksdale in April 2014. Under the direction of Delta State University, it used a $502,000 grant received from the Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi Foundation, to offer classes and activities that encouraged individuals to adopt lifelong healthy practices. It promoted a health and wellness curriculum, physical activity in Coahoma County schools and educated students and their parents about daily fitness activities and nutrition.

 

This was a great program that inspired many people within our community toward the path to a healthier lifestyle. The BCBS grant ended in October 2015, but parts of the program continue today.

 

HCCI programming continues today by offering fitness classes throughout the year and offering a week-long summer camp for area youth called Camp R.O.C.K. (Recreation and Outdoors for Coahoma Kids).

 

The fitness classes are sustained by charging a small fee ($5 per class) for participants

who sign up for 6 to 9 week sessions year round depending on our calendar.  

We currently offer Rock Body classes, Toning classes, Tai Chi and Circuit Training.

See the 2019 schedule below for current fitness opportunities.
