In 2013, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) released Evaluating Obesity Prevention Efforts: A Plan for Measuring Progress. In addition to a national plan for planning, implementing, and evaluating the results of obesity prevention–related policies and programs, the report outlines a Community Obesity Evaluation Plan that identifies key components of implementing evaluations at the community level. The IOM is launching a newly-created resource page that provides an overview of key steps and principles in community-level evaluation, as well as links to related resources from the IOM, government agencies, and the Community Tool Box
This webinar will provide introductory remarks about the 2013 IOM Report, and will feature steps in community evaluation and related resources for supporting evaluation efforts.
Learning Objectives: At the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:
- Identify benefits of evaluating obesity prevention–related policies and programs;
- Describe steps in evaluating community-level obesity prevention efforts;
- Access resources supporting community-level obesity prevention efforts
