This manual is a true example of synergy. Large portions were copied directly from the New Mexico manual, “Facilitator’s Guide for Nutrition Education – Listen, Share, Support” and also from Kentucky’s adaptation of New Mexico’s manual. In addition, thanks can be given to professionals here in Tennessee for creating our own adaptation. Jane Baxter, who served as curriculum consultant, Betsy Haughton, who guided the evaluation process, Tim Gill, our media creator, and Laurie Stanton who provided research and writing skills are certainly to be commended.
Joy Almond, Pamela Newton, and Glenda Nanney served as advisors and offered suggestions not only on the manual but also on the workshop, “Facilitators of Change,” held in Nashville on January 8, 9, and 10, 2003.
In addition to those mentioned above, sincere thanks for creativity, support, technical assistance and hard work are given to the following:
Barbara Bridges, Ann Hopton, Perrie Hutcherson, Jennifer Isaacson, Abdul Khoshnaw, Glenda King, Peggy Lewis, Barbara Lucas, Rubelyn Mays, Bill McCorkle Kay Moore, Sharon Morrow, Jerry Orenstein, Jim Raybeck, Evelyn Roberts, Sabrina Sasser, Jeanece Seals, Brian Senecal, Barbara Shields, Charles Smith, Barbara Thompson, and Kathy Vaughan.
