Developing and implementing a childhood obesity toolkit that provides educational and resource materials for use by national membership organizations

This grant supports the Institute for the Advancement of Multicultural and Minority Medicine (IAMMM) in developing a toolkit and in training 10 of its 87 Collaborative Partners Council members to implement strategies to prevent childhood obesity in schools and communities, particularly minority communities. IAMMM will develop memoranda of understanding outlining expectations for each of the 10 organizations. In addition to the toolkit, IAMMM will provide at least three train-the-trainer sessions to ensure that the partners can fully implement the strategies.
