Communities Helping Children be Healthy: A Guide to Reducing Childhood Obesity in Low-Income African American et al Families
This document is intended to assist those in communities who want to start culturally appropriate programs to reduce childhood obesity. It may also serve to improve communication and work between communities, researchers and philanthropies so that implementation of critically needed programs can be undertaken. Rather than inventing "new" strategies, the aim of this document is to broadly describe the steps and strategies already known to be potential best practices, why they are potential best practices, and the various pitfalls that implementers can encounter.
