School Systems Interest Group

Staff Liaison: Anna Browar

The School Systems Interest Group is focused on the role of schools in childhood obesity prevention. Our goal is to serve as a forum to share expertise regarding best practices in creating healthy school environments. We focus on identifying and disseminating strategies to support schools in implementing policies and practices that promote healthy eating and physical activity.

The group welcomes school service providers, school staff and administrators, school health professionals, and other public health practitioners and researchers interested in school health and wellness.

Members will explore common issues in working with schools; share updates on new initiatives, related research and evaluation findings; and collaborate on common efforts, including professional development workshops offered through CLOCC’s Healthy Teacher Network.
