Steps to Health can support NC State Extension professionals conducting one-time events or activities in settings such as elementary schools, early childcare and education sites, food pantries, farmers markets, food retail venues, health clinics, or work sites.

Although one-time events and activities can lead to PSE work, for reporting purposes we look at them a little differently. PSE work is part of an ongoing project/plan that reaches the community/population level and is part of an ongoing, long-term, sustainable plan. A one-time event/activity, reaches the individual level, does not start out as part of an ongoing plan, is short-term, and not sustainable. More information on PSE can be found on the NC Steps to Health Website

Characteristics of a one-time event or indirect activity Characteristics of PSE Change

Short term Long term
Stand alone Part of an ongoing plan
Not sustainable Sustainable

In order to receive Steps to Health support, the event/activity must serve one of the identified purposes, meet eligibility requirements, and follow the steps outlined in the Supplemental Events and Activities guide.

Steps to Health campus staff are available to assist with confirming eligibility or event planning, as needed.
