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.
