About the Webinar
The presentation will share findings of a qualitative study conducted with SNAP-Ed leaders in California in 2015-16. At that time, the state was newly implementing guidelines to ensure that SNAP-Ed programs integrate policy, systems, and environmental change interventions rather than deliver more traditional nutrition education programs in isolation. The presentation will discuss the processes, facilitators, and barriers reported by leaders in planning, implementing, and evaluating local programs.
