Count unduplicated new clients who participate in the grantee's health education program. If the health education program has multiple sessions, topics, etc., count the client once. Do not count clients by number of sessions. For example, if a health education program meets once a month for one year, and has 12 participants who complete, then only report 12 (not 144).
Grantee collects data on clients attending each session. Logs, case management systems, etc.
