State and Local Public Health Actions to Prevent Obesity, Diabetes, and Heart Disease and Stroke Grant Evaluation (1422)

State and Local Public Health Actions to Prevent Obesity, Diabetes, and Heart Disease and Stroke Grant Evaluation (1422)

The purpose of the 1422 grant is to support implementation of population-wide and priority population approaches to prevent obesity, diabetes, and heart disease and stroke and to reduce health disparities in these areas among adults, with a primary focus on adults with uncontrolled high blood pressure and/or diabetes and those at high risk for developing type 2 diabetes. There are two components to the 1422 grant. Component 1 supports environmental and system approaches to promote health, support 
and reinforce healthful behaviors, and build support for lifestyle improvements while component 2 supports health system interventions and community-clinical linkages.

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Social & Behavioral Sciences Research Consortium is utilized to conduct the local health department level evaluation of the 1422 grant in Nebraska. At both the state and local level, evaluation efforts for the 1422 grant will examine how the strategies within and between components 1 and 2 are being mutually reinforced, with a focus on assessing facilitators and barriers to implementing grant strategies.
