Community Leadership Institute for Childhood Obesity Prevention

July 21-23, 2009
Boston, MA

Children in Balance is offering a 3-day Community Leadership Institute for professionals and advocates who wish to further childhood obesity prevention efforts in their communities. Our goal for this training is to empower leaders from diverse communities to create healthier environments for elementary-aged children, encouraging better nutrition and more opportunities for physical activity.

Topics to be covered include working with school food service to improve school food, building community coalitions, strategic use of communication campaigns, and implementing nutrition and physical activity curricula. The Institute will include keynote speakers with expertise in community-based childhood obesity research and practice; the opportunity to hear stories from and ask questions of activists in Somerville; and planning time for community leaders.
