Healthy People eLearning, a resource from the Department of Health and Human Services, is offering a new childhood obesity lesson that explores how one community is implementing and evaluating a systems-wide approach to reduce childhood obesity.
The lesson, “Defining Success in a Systems Approach: The San Diego County Childhood Obesity Initiative,” examines how San Diego County is learning to evaluate its systems approach to reduce childhood obesity and create healthier environments. The course is free and offers continuing education credits.
Healthy People eLearning is designed to help students and health professionals learn how to reach the nation’s health goals. All educational offerings feature a case study of a community working to achieve Healthy People 2020 objectives and provide free continuing education.
