The Value of Regional-Level Work

A Case Study of the Central California Regional Obesity Prevention Program (CCROPP)

This case study aims to shed light on the potential value of regional work by looking closely at the specific form and structure that the Central California Regional Obesity Prevention Program's (CCROPP) regional work has taken.

It highlights CCROPP’s effectiveness as a regional model in supporting the advancement of key policy and environmental change goals, as well as the implications for a variety of audiences, including policy-makers, potential funders of regionally-based obesity prevention work, community organizers, and rural communities who share common issues with California’s San Joaquin Valley.
