posted by Research Admin 1 on 26 March 2020

Preventing Chronic Disease, Public Health Research, Practice and Policy’s latest collection features 9 articles highlighting approaches to improve the nutrition and physical activity environments in rural areas with a high prevalence of adult obesity.

CDC’s Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity launched a program called Programs to Reduce Obesity in High Obesity Areas, also referred to as HOP, and this collection highlights the program’s approach and describes both overarching and program-specific evaluation findings. Seven of the articles highlight the work of land-grant universities, and one describes HOP’s implementation approach, evaluation framework, and key findings.
