Evaluation of the Healthy Schools Healthy Communities Initiative

Evaluation of the Healthy Schools Healthy Communities Initiative

The Healthy Schools Healthy Communities initiative works at the school district level, and school districts in turn reach out to their K-8 schools. Schools conduct wellness assessments and create action plans in order to meet intermediate outcomes and the long-term goal of reducing the incidence of childhood obesity in their districts. Professor Vicki Collie-Akers will lead an evaluation of the program that will examine how comprehensive implementation of policy, program and environmental changes impact healthy eating, physical activity and weight status among children.
