Join Kaiser Permanente, the Public Health Institute and civic leaders from across the nation on June 28 for a free webinar to discuss strategies to convert the power of the Weight of the Nation™ films and campaign assets into tangible action for healthier food, beverage, social, and community environments.
The web forum will highlight the key themes of the Institute of Medicine’s (IOM) report, Accelerating Progress on Obesity Prevention, and provide methods you can use to help grow the movement for a healthier nation by mobilizing individuals, organizations, companies, and place-based partnerships everywhere.
Participants will learn how to engage their community, activate social media, and other actions that can:
• Start new conversations about healthier eating in homes, neighborhoods, worksites, clinical settings, faith settings, and schools.
• Deepen existing conversations and actions – particularly within the movement of place-based partnerships and collaboratives.
• Build a widespread constituency for targeted actions and environmental changes that support healthy living where we live, learn, work, play, worship, and vote.
