ChildObesity180 is a unique and multidisciplinary organization that leverages innovative approaches from nutrition and public health, systems science, and the business community to transform the way communities prevent obesity. We bring together cross-sector leaders to bring together gather diverse perspectives, build consensus, and drive coordinated, comprehensive action to improve environments and promote health for everyone.
The Catalyzing Communities Initiative is an innovative, effective, research-based approach to reducing disparities, decreasing obesity, and improving health in communities around the country. We work with stakeholders at all levels to catalyze and sustain a systematic, personalized, and holistic effort to improve the health and wellbeing of all children—now and for the rest of their lives. The Project Administrator will provide specialized subject matter knowledge in community-engaged research, public health, health equity, and nutrition science, along with an excitement and willingness to learn about innovative approaches to obesity prevention like Community-based System Dynamics. The Project administrator will develop, implement, review and evaluate the Catalyzing Communities Initiative in collaboration with Senior Program Manager, Principal Investigator and co-Investigators, and other project staff.
