The Washington County SAFE Coalition has been awarded a grant to promote a national program in Washington.  Chrystal Woller with Washington County Public Health says they are one of 37 recipients from across the country to receive this grant from the American Medical Association Foundation Healthy Lifestyles Grant.

She says this grant will allow the coalition to give special presentations on the topic of anti‑bullying behaviors and encouraging respectful relationships with peers and adults at the Washington High School on Tuesday, December 6th.

Out of the grants distributed, Washington County SAFE Coalition’s was the only one awarded in Iowa.
