  • Monday, November 7, 2:30 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
  • Program: Food and Nutrition
  • Session Format: Oral
  • As obesity prevalence continues to increase in the US, and structural racism and social and commercial determinants of health continue their influence, nutrition programs and policies with good evidence for feasible implementation and effectiveness have attracted attention. This session discusses new CHOICES (Childhood Obesity Intervention Cost Effectiveness Study) evaluations of four different nutrition policies. Results indicate clear program and policy successes, and different pathways that decision makers can take to improve population health and health equity.
