LiveWell Colorado, a nonprofit focused on preventing and reducing obesity in Colorado, and the Rocky Mountain Public Health Training Center are partnering with ECHO Colorado to develop and launch an interactive video learning community series titled “Creating a Sustainable Movement” to build capacity and community around Healthy Eating and Active Living (HEAL) issues. Individuals from across Colorado, including those working in partnership with rural and underserved communities, are invited to participate if they are coordinating HEAL-related work with communities.

The series will focus on identifying, employing and developing strategies and tactics to form transformative partnerships with communities to create sustainable change efforts. Root causes of obesity and health equity will be consistent themes throughout the series.

Engage with peers and experts on:

  • Leadership development and community engagement

  • Policy making and advocacy

  • Funding sustainability

Sessions will include a brief presentation from a subject matter expert, panelists including community collaborators, and a facilitated discussion among learners and panel members.
