UPDATED ADVISORY CONCERNING ELECTRONIC CIGARETTES, THE PRACTICE OF “VAPING,” “JUULING” AND USE OF OTHER ELECTRONIC NICOTINE DELIVERY SYSTEMS OR ENDS

The Gold Sneaker Initiative

Gold Sneaker policies are currently under revision. Revision is expected to be finalized by the end of October 2018. The Gold Sneaker in-person training, promotional materials and the Gold Sneaker webpage are expected to be updated and made available by November 2018.

The online Gold Sneaker training previously available on the Tennessee Child Care Online Training System (TCCOTS) is being updated.  A notice will be sent out once the new online training is available. 

Once the Gold Sneaker revision process has been completed, childcare facility staff will be encouraged to contact their local county health department to schedule an in-person Gold Sneaker training, where available, or contact Peju Makinde to arrange webinar training at peju.makinde@tn.gov. Staff will also have the option to complete Gold Sneaker designation training online via TCCOTS at www.tccots.com.
