Childhood Obesity Intervention Cost-Effectiveness Study (CHOICES)
Deadline: October 1, 2019
The purpose of this program is to help prevent childhood obesity by building local capacity among decision-makers to choose and implement cost-effective strategies. This partnership opportunity will allow state, city, and county health agencies and their partners to use local data to examine the potential cost-effectiveness, health impacts, and cost of childhood obesity prevention intervention options that could be implemented locally. Through the program, the funding agency will provide technical assistance, training, tools, and resources to local decision-makers to help them identify those obesity prevention strategies that, if implemented, could represent the best value for money, reduce childhood obesity, and potentially reduce disparities. Health agencies participating in the program may be asked to develop teams across sectors that may include clinical, community, local public health, and/or education agencies, or other local government agencies.
