Promoting Healthy Weight Success Stories & New Online Offering from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health

Dec 26, 2020 | Taylarr Lopez

The CHOICES Project at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health launched their Stories from the Field series earlier this year with guidance from NACCHO. The first two stories feature the work of CHOICES partners in Oklahoma and Denver who modeled strategies with strong evidence for promoting healthy weight among kids, then were able to use those results to put the strategies into action. Read the stories for Oklahoma and Denver to learn more. If you’re interested in the work described in the Stories from the Field, consider joining the newly-launched CHOICES Community of Practice. This online offering connects members with the tools and resources they need to identify cost-effective strategies to promote healthy eating and active living in their jurisdictions. The community of practice can be accessed here.
