Join our coffee chat on February 25: How projections of the future of obesity can inform decision-making

How Projections of the Future of Obesity Can Inform Decision-Making
Thursday, February 25 from 2:00pm – 2:50pm Eastern
Speaker: Dr. Zach Ward of the CHOICES Team

The goals for this session are:

  • For participants to understand how Dr. Ward and other CHOICES colleagues used the CHOICES model to predict the future rates of child and adult obesity in the U.S.
  • For participants to understand how public health practitioners and their partners can use this information for action

For those who have not attended a coffee chat before, in the context of the CHOICES Community of Practice, our coffee chats are informal yet structured conversations. It’s a unique opportunity to gather ideas, innovate together, network, and hear personal stories.

Have you browsed the resources available on our Community of Practice portal?

If you are not yet a member, sign up to check out our variety of tools and resources. In particular, you might find it useful to watch this video featuring Dr. Ward discussing the CHOICES Model as a bit of background prior to joining the coffee chat.

If you have any specific questions or requests for discussion topics that you’d like the CHOICES Team to address during the coffee chat, please send us an email at choicesproject@hsph.harvard.edu

This event is part of our monthly CHOICES Community of Practice coffee chat series. This coffee chat is for any public health professional whose work focuses on advancing obesity prevention, healthy eating, and active living and want to learn more about how cost-effectiveness analysis can advance their efforts and address health equity.
