How Common Threads is Fighting Childhood Obesity

While the clinical stuff is really fun, one of my favorite classes in my dietetics program was Community Nutrition. That’s the class where we learned how assess a community’s needs, then design programs & policies to meet those needs. (And if you know anything about me, you know that’s where my heart lies.)

My project for that class was to attend a community meeting & present what I learned to the class. I was very fortunate to be able to attend a panel in Miami presented by Common Threads where several very smart people discussed health disparities in the black community.

This is my presentation. I hope that it sheds a light on possible community solutions to a big public health issue.
