The Star of's Next Webinar: You!


One of the great services we offer at are free webinars designed to both educate Leaders and highlight the amazing work so many of you are doing in the field.

On past webinars, we’ve featured Leaders talking about joint use agreements, the impact of social media, obesity in the Latino community and most recently, collaborating with others to improve community health.

But we know the best webinar ideas come from Leaders.

Do you have an idea for a webinar? Or is there an issue affecting the childhood obesity movement that you would like to discuss with other Leaders? If so, we’d love to work with you to put on a webinar. Contact our customer relations manager Zach Brooks to get the conversation started.

In related webinar news, our friends at Leadership for Healthy Communities are hosting a July 31 webinar providing an overview of Health Impact Assessments (HIAs).

Used to examine the potential health impacts of a policy, project or plan, HIAs are a unique form of resource that looks for participation and input from a variety of stakeholders. They tend to focus on health outcomes, particularly for vulnerable populations.

In the webinar, presenters will share examples of HIAs for proposed policies and projects that focus on healthy eating and active living. They also will offer strategies to advance policy and share advice for creating programmatic and system changes to ensure healthier food and physical activity are accessible in all states through HIAs.

Scheduled presenters include Bethany Rogerson, a senior associate at the Health Impact Project; Julia Pekarsky Schneider, director of Chronic Disease Prevention Policy at the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials; and Megan Lott, senior associate at the Kids’ Safe & Healthful Foods Project.

The webinar is slated to begin at 2 p.m. and last one hour. Click here to register.
