GROW Healthy Kids & Communities is a multi-state project with an aim to understand the context for obesity among rural children. In order to develop and inform a model of rural obesity prevention, communities across Oregon and 5 Western states are conducting community-engaged research to map community resources that support or hinder healthy eating and physical activity habits among youth and adults. Project directors will introduce HEAL MAPPS, their innovative tool, and explore with participants the utility of the technology for engaging people in applied research and directed actions to improve environmental conditions for obesity prevention in their local place.
