Journal Club 7: Church Leaders' Views of Obesity Prevention Efforts for Children and Youth
Faith-based research and partnerships are becoming more popular as an approach to address the health of underserved populations including racial and ethnic minorities and rural populations. Despite growing interest in faith-health partnerships, little research is available assessing faith-based interventions as potential leverage points for the prevention of childhood and adolescent obesity and the promotion of healthy behaviors. Dr. Dunn will discuss her recent work focused on examining faith-based communities as leverage points for the prevention of child and adolescent obesity from conceptualization to implementation. This work was completed in partnership and with the support of the South Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church and the Fairfield County Community Coordinating Council (SC).
