Health Promotion and Public Education Interest Group
The Health Promotion and Public Education Interest Group (HPPEIG) is a network for those engaged in health promotion for childhood obesity prevention in clinics, classrooms, or any community setting. Our goal is to create a space for professionals to share best practices, develop skills in health promotion and to work collectively to promote evidence-based health education approaches. This group will begin its work with the development of initiatives to support CLOCC’s Blueprint for Accelerating Progress in Childhood Obesity Prevention in Chicago: The Next Decade. One focus for 2013 will be the development of an evidence-based public education message for obesity prevention that is appropriate for 0-3 year olds based on CLOCC’s 5-4-3-2-1 Go! message.
