The class modules and discussion with other participants made me more aware of how my actions and personal biases can get in the way of creating a inclusive environment. I am also more sensitive to the way others behave (towards me or other people) and can see how their own personal biases may lead the interaction to happen in that manner. Prior to the course, I thought if we have diversity, then it is all good. But now after the course, I realize that having diversity is good, but not good enough if we don't have inclusion in the equation. That is a big eye opener for me.

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.
