Childhood Obesity Prevention Toolkit for Rural Communities
Nemours, a foundation that operates an integrated children’s health system, just released a Childhood Obesity Prevention Toolkit for Rural Communities! The toolkit provides a range of strategies and success stories to assist practitioners in child-serving sectors, including: early care and education, schools, out-of-school time, community initiatives and healthcare. The profiled communities were able to leverage their unique rural resources and benefited from close community bonds to improve children’s health. The toolkit also includes policy recommendations and an overview of the evaluation process. Feel free to share the link with interested colleagues, networks, stakeholders and constituencies.
