The Prevention Agenda (2013-17) is the blue print for action to improve and promote the health of all New Yorkers. The Prevention Agenda Dashboard provides a means of tracking health indicators at the state and county levels. But how can you tell if local strategies are really contributing to “moving the needle” on Prevention Agenda health indicators?   This one hour webinar is an introduction to measuring progress and success through robust local level evaluation projects.  It will present a framework for evaluating chronic disease prevention programs,  use of the framework to design successful evaluation projects and provide two specific examples of local evaluation projects.

Learning Objectives: After this program participants will be able to

  • Describe the framework for evaluating chronic disease prevention programs.
  • Demonstrate use of the framework to design successful evaluation projects.
  • Illustrate two examples of local evaluation projects.
