Champaign, IL - On April 28, 2011, the Champaign-Urbana Public Health District (CUPHD) will participate in a national public education program, Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work®. This year's theme is "Invent the Future". According to the Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work® Foundation, more than 35 million youth and adults participate at over 3 million workplaces each year.

This will be the seventh year for CUPHD to participate in this interactive program. Over 20 children, ranging in age from 4-16, will join their CUPHD parents at work to participate in this annual event. The day will begin with a healthy breakfast and an agency tour with the Administrator, Julie Pryde. In addition to a "business lunch", the group will participate in activities including hand washing, Petri dish experiments, dental health, physical activity, and gardening.
