Picking Up the Pace in Healthy Living Policy and Evaluation
This strategy session was part of the 2014 GIH Fall Forum.
9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. (Registration and continental breakfast 8:00 - 9:00 a.m.)
In communities across the country, those working hard to promote healthy lifestyles and reverse the obesity epidemic are seeing promising signs of progress. However, there is still much work to be done. A recent GIH scan of the field found that public policy and evaluation are two areas where health funders can help make significant headway. This meeting allowed participants to explore federal, state, and local policy opportunities; to engage in thoughtful debate about the role of government and industry in promoting change; to learn innovative evaluation techniques and strategies; and to consider how evaluation can better inform grantmaker investments and priorities.
