Research and Evaluation

Research and Evaluation Interest Group

Staff Liaisons: Maryann Mason and Sarah Welch

The Research and Evaluation Interest Group is focused on research and evaluation in support of childhood obesity prevention. The group welcomes research and evaluation practitioners, those interested in evaluating their agency’s programs, and all others with an interest in childhood obesity prevention research and evaluation. We are particularly interested in and focused on community-engaged research and evaluation in which communities play an active role in research and evaluation.

We will share new research and evaluation findings, explore common issues in conducting research and evaluation, and collaborate and strategize on common efforts.
