Be Our Voice: Obesity Prevention Advocacy Training

Become an advocate for change in your community.

NICHQ's Obesity Prevention Advocacy Training seeks to reverse the childhood obesity epidemic across the nation by training and supporting healthcare professionals in becoming advocates for policy and environmental systems change within their communities. This dynamic, interactive online program provides healthcare professionals with information about how they can become advocates for obesity prevention policy change, an opportunity to practice newly developed skills in a simulated community, access to a virtual Q&A system with videos from trained advocates, and guidance on how to create a personal Advocacy Plan to direct their advocacy work.

The training program was developed as part of the Be Our Voice initiative.
