The CHOICES Project is excited to host the second event in our CHOICES Web Forum series. In this panel, key leaders in the field will discuss strategies in the health care setting that can improve population health and reduce disparities in obesity-related health behaviors and outcomes and can be feasibly implemented across cities, counties, and states in the United States.
William Dietz, MD, PhD, Director, Sumner M. Redstone Global Center for Prevention and Wellness, Milken Institute School of Public Health, The George Washington University
- Captain Heidi Blanck, PhD, MS, Branch Chief, Chronic Disease Nutrition/Obesity, Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

- Elsie Taveras, MD, MPH, Chief Community Health Equity Officer, Mass General Brigham, Executive Director, Kraft Center for Community Health at MGH, Conrad Taff Endowed Professor, Harvard Medical School
Partners at Denver Public Health will share how they used cost-effectiveness analysis as a decision-making tool to implement a clinical strategy in Denver Health clinics to promote healthy weight.
We’ll also hear their perspectives and experiences that other health agencies can consider when prioritizing these kinds of efforts.
Following the panel, join a 30-minute discussion with the speakers hosted by the CHOICES Community of Practice.
