HEAL Policy in Uncertain Times
April 19, 2017 1:00 pm Eastern Time
From the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, the past eight years have been fruitful for federal healthy eating/active living (HEAL) policy. With a new Administration and a new Congress, the policy landscape has shifted, requiring funders to reevaluate their focus.
This webinar taught us about recent trends and developments in federal and state HEAL policy and the impact on local efforts, how advocacy organizations are adjusting their strategies, the opportunities and challenges for the field, and what health funders can do to effectively support their grantees and HEAL policymaking going forward. Speakers included: Harold Goldstein of Public Health Advocates, Carter Headrick of Voice for Healthy Kids, Glenn Schneider of The Horizon Foundation, and Janelle Waldock of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota.
