YouTube video

Recorded August 18, 2022. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity supports the use of timely data for decision making and spreading evidence-based interventions in both clinical and community settings to support healthy child growth. Dr. Heidi Blanck discusses recent data modernization efforts in the use of electronic health records and community data to advance child health programming and obesity prevention and management through population-health efforts. She also discusses data advances and implementation science frameworks that are being used to bring more proven interventions to venues that serve children from lower-income households. Dr. Blanck focuses on interventions that are acceptable to implementors and families, and that help address behavioral risk factors and social determinants of obesity. Highlighted resources include available statistical software resources, data governance models, privacy-preserving technology, and proof-of-concept collaborative applied research projects across the United States that can support healthy child growth.
