CDC Early Childhood Obesity Prevention

Recognizing the impact of obesity on Alaskans, the state’s Obesity Prevention and Control Program (OPCP) sought to align the efforts of the program and its partner organizations by convening a community-based coalition focused on improving children’s health. OPCP contracted with Agnew::Beck to design a strategic planning process for the coalition. Agnew::Beck led the nascent coalition through a data-driven, Results-based Accountability (RBA) method to develop priorities and strategies to change the trend of increasing numbers of obese children. In addition to developing the strategic planning process and plan, Agnew::Beck led the coalition through a branding and naming effort; built a website for the coalition; and organized an inaugural childhood obesity prevention and child health summit.
