Logic Model Training, Other Resources Available from CDPHE Obesity Integration Project

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has identified 12 evidence-based strategies to reduce the weight of the state. The best way to implement these strategies and impact statewide obesity rates is through collaborative action with local public health agencies and other public and private partners.Please review the information below and visit the Obesity Integration Project page on COPrevent, the Prevention Services Division partner site, to learn more about this important public health initiative.

Collective Impact

We want to align our obesity efforts with those of our partners to reinforce, share and leverage obesity prevention strategies. There are five core components of a collective impact approach: a common agenda, a shared measurement system, mutually reinforcing activities, continuous communication, and a backbone support organization. To learn more, share ideas or get involved, please contact Andrea Wagner. 

Local Public Health Agency Support

As CDPHE Obesity Integration Teams begin the process of recruiting team members and developing logic models, EPE staff was kind enough to conduct a training on logic model best practices.  Feel free to use these resources and review the training video if it would help you draft your own strategies for obesity prevention or other public health initiatives.
