Presentation/ Slides: “Western Region’s SNAP-Ed Evaluation Framework“, presented by Andrew Riesenberg, MSPH.

The Western Region SNAP‐Ed Evaluation Framework: Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity Prevention Outcomes is a menu of indicators for measuring the effectiveness of SNAP‐Ed activities The Framework includes a focused menu of 51 outcome indicators that align with the SNAP‐Ed guiding principles and lend support to documenting changes resulting from multiple approaches required in the SNAP Nutrition Education and Obesity Prevention grant (SNAP-Ed). These approaches include individual, family, and group‐based nutrition education, physical activity and health promotion, and related intervention strategies; comprehensive, multi‐level interventions; and community and public health approaches. Western Region SNAP-Ed agencies that work to deliver comprehensive programs that include direct education, social marketing, and policy, systems, and environmental (PSE) changes do not have a mechanism to identify, track, or report their myriad accomplishments. The Framework attempts to fill this gap.
