Obesity Guide

Advocacy Resource Guide

Tools for mobilizing healthcare professionals in the fight against childhood obesity.

This Advocacy Resource Guide provides a snapshot of the obesity epidemic and how it is impacting children; a “how-to” for advocacy at the community, state and national levels; strategies for working with decision makers and the media to communicate a message; areas and opportunities for policy engagement; and tools and resources to help healthcare professionals plan and support their work.

This report was developed as part of the Mobilizing Healthcare Professionals as Community Leaders in the Fight Against Childhood Obesity project. (See related Advocacy Toolbox resource.)
