Collaboration between community assets is needed to improve a consumer's ability to take an active role in their overall health and quality of life. By increasing collaboration between community partners and assets, community members will develop a stronger connection with local resources and become empowered to develop health policies that promote healthy eating and physical activity.
Session Objectives: Identify challenges in evaluating policy and environmental change components of public health initiatives.
