Abstract:

The Greater Rochester Health Foundation, formed in 2006, has identified elementary schools as key to addressing childhood overweight and obesity issues, and is seeking to promote strategies involving increased physical activity and improved nutrition. The foundation turned to CGR to conduct a multi-faceted survey of practices, policies and attitudes in Monroe County NY school districts toward preventing these issues for elementary students. Study findings are helping the foundation target future resources.
