Module 3 Wrap-Up

Collaborations for Intervention

You are not alone; or at least you shouldn't be if you want your assessment to be thorough and your intervention to succeed. A group of community partners with a shared goal can help you uncover underlying factors related to childhood obesity locally. Moreover, you will need their help—and probably the help of other stakeholders—to make the kinds of changes required to create a long-lasting solution to the problem, particularly if you are trying to change the environment.

In this section, we'll be discussing the hows and whys of collaboration building.

After completing this section, you should be able to:

  • Discuss the rationale and approaches for building and facilitating effective collaborations for addressing nutrition issues
