Planning Programs

Date published
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)


Participants learn how to develop measurable objectives, identify health strategies and evidence-based interventions, address barriers to implementation, and develop plans for communication, work, and evaluation. After approximately 4 hours of an interactive, facilitator-led discussion, participants are asked to complete a (2 ½ hour) skill assessment and practice planning a program for an obesity centered epidemic.

Note: The facilitator guide contains copies of all slides and guidelines on what to say and do for each slide. It also contains the skill assessment (i.e., exercise) and potential answers. The participant guide contains copies of all slides, some key points, a place to take notes, and all exercises. 

You must have "instructor" membership status to download the (MS Word) facilitator guide and PowerPoint presentation.
