Education, Environmental Change & Evaluation: Combining Multiple Approaches to Nutrition Education & Obesity Prevention in Low-Income Populations
Wednesday, August 27, 2014 | 1:30 - 2:30 PM EDT | Register
Speaker: Andrew Riesenberg, MSPH, Food and Nutrition Service, Western Regional Office
No single strategy has the potential to prevent overweight and obesity, especially among low-income populations. A growing body of evidence calls for multi-component approaches to nutrition education, physical activity promotion, and obesity prevention. Program implementers working on Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed) are at the forefront of planning, implementing, and evaluating multi-component strategies and interventions. This session intends to connect research and practice in how direct education, social marketing, and environmental change are best delivered together. Special emphasis will be placed on setting evaluation objectives that measure progress and outcomes in multi-component programs, including measuring parallel objectives in individual and environmental changes. Sponsored by the SNEB Social Marketing Division in cooperation with ASNNA.
a. Increase understanding of what a multi-component nutrition education, physical activity, and obesity prevention model looks like;
b. Increase knowledge, skills, and confidence to link education, social marketing, and environmental changes in SNAP-Ed
c. Identify evaluation indicators for multi-component programming with individual, organizational, and environmental changes
