Communities Putting Prevention to Work Evaluation Team

Pima County was awarded a $16 million grant by the CDC to address obesity. MEZCOPH is responsible for evaluation of coalition activities to impact obesity through environmental and policy changes in Pima County with a focus on health disparity. This has involved working across the University with the College of Architecture Drachman Institute and the College of Nutritional Sciences as well as with a number of community agencies that include the Tucson Community Food Bank, the United Way, the YMCA and Carondelet Health Network.  CPPW interventions focus on schools, worksites, health and human services, faith-based organizations, and communities.
