Collective Impact and Community-Based Efforts for Food and Nutrition

Tuesday, November 3, 2015: 12:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
Establishing systems and environments to support healthy diet and physical activity behaviors requires engaging a diverse network of stakeholders. The use of community-based coalitions and frameworks such as collective impact to create connectivity among sectors and advance efforts along a common agenda has become increasingly popular in recent years. This session will describe a variety of community-based efforts designed to empower collective action to enable policies, systems, and environments that promote healthy food access, opportunities for physical activity and prevent obesity.
Session Objectives: Identify one possible method to evaluate community-based obesity prevention initiatives. Describe at least one evidence-based practice for leveraging resources in multi-sector coalitions. Identify multi-sectoral community and policy approaches to promote healthy eating and active living. Identify at least one strategy for applying a collective impact framework to obesity prevention efforts.
