P.L.A.N.E.T. Updates

COLLABORATION:

Research to Reality

Obesity
Complex, but Conquerable.That has been the take home message from the IOM’s report, Accelerating Progress in Obesity Prevention: Solving the Weight of the Nation, and HBO’s complimentary four-part documentary series, both released in May. Research to Reality has been at the forefront of this multi-faceted issue with discussions, tools, and stories about the work being done to implement obesity prevention programs, strategies, and policies in communities across the country:

  • Join Dr. Neumark-Sztainer, this month’s RTIPs featured partner, in a conversation around New Moves, a program she developed and tested in schools in the greater Minnesota area. Learn more about the program components and outcomes, and discuss strategies to help you move New Moves from R2R.
  • Follow our Weight of the Nation discussion to learn more about IOM’s obesity prevention recommendations, CDC’s Eat
    Healthy - Be Active community workshops, shared/joint use agreement strategies, and a recently released toolkit for local food policy councils.
  • Large scale problems, such as obesity, require large scale changes at the policy, system, and environmental levels. Does the task seem too large or does the opportunity to make largescale impacts energize you? Join Karin and Leslie in this month's Coalition Corner as they look at addressing large-scale changes.
  • Weigh in on New York‘s sugary beverage ban proposal and share your opinion on whether this policy will have a positive impact on public health.

We invite you to join these discussions on R2R and share the important work you’re doing to redress the obesity pandemic.

Guide to Community Preventive Services

Updated Evidence and New Findings
The July issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine includes two articles featuring updated evidence reviews and Community Preventive Services Task Force findings for nine interventions aimed at increasing screening for breast, cervical, and colorectal cancer.

Community Guide in Action: Stories from the Field
The Community Guide in Action: Stories from the Field now includes new stories that show how findings from the Community Preventive Services Task Force have been used to improve the safety and health of communities across the country. These include topics relevant to cancer prevention and control, such as "Black Corals: A Gem of a Cancer Screening Program in South Carolina," which was featured at a Research to Reality Cyber Seminar about The Community Guide.

PROGRAMS:

Research Tested Intervention Programs (RTIPs)

New Moves

The program is designed to promote healthy dietary habits and increase physical activity to reduce obesity among adolescent girls. The programmatic materials are available at the New Moves program website: http://www.newmovesonline.com. A research study was conducted to test the efficacy of the intervention and at posttest, the intervention group showed a significant decrease in sedentary activity and in decrease in unhealthy eating behaviors compared to the control group.
