Evaluation of State Nutrition and Physical Activity Programs to Prevent Obesity and Other Chronic Diseases—New—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The “State Nutrition and Physical Activity Programs to Prevent Obesity and Other Chronic Diseases” project was established by CDC to prevent and control obesity and other chronic diseases by supporting States in the development and implementation of nutrition and physical activity interventions, particularly through population-based strategies such as policy-level changes, environmental supports and the social marketing process. The goal of the programs in this project is to attain population-based behavior change such as increased physical activity and better dietary habits; this will likely lead to a reduction in the prevalence of obesity, and ultimately to a reduction in the prevalence of obesity-related chronic diseases.
The evaluation questions for “State Nutrition and Physical Activity Programs to Prevent Obesity and Other Chronic Diseases” have been designed to focus on three primary areas: (1) CDC training and technical assistance; (2) State plan development; and (3) State interventions. Within each of these primary evaluation areas, the program has identified specific evaluation questions that have been chosen for study. The evaluation questions will be asked of the funded states via a Web-based data collection system supported by an electronic database. This evaluation will take place every six months during the funding cycle. The proposed project will be conducted over a three-year period. There is no cost to the respondents. The total burden hours are 480.
