Taking Action Against Childhood Obesity
Childhood Obesity Awareness and Action Plan for Communities of Color
The project involved audience research, interviews with experts in the field, and sessions with stakeholders from African-American organizations and communities in Atlanta and Baltimore. In its final report and video documentary, MEE made recommendations to RWJF about how to effectively reach, educate and motivate low-income African American parents of young children (ages 3-12) to become advocates for environmental and policy change in their communities. MEE also made recommendations regarding dissemination of the findings in order to move “preventing childhood obesity” further up the list of priorities in underserved communities across the country.
