Health Services: Eat Smart
Health Services - EAT SMART Missoula Coalition
Meetings serve as a forum for community leaders to:
- Systematically review evidenced based interventions (both in our community and in the nation) that promote healthy eating and chronic disease prevention
- Discuss overarching principals and roles of commerce, politics and science as they influence food selection by Missoula residents
- Help prioritize community interventions that fit within Missoula communities to promote healthy nutrition and healthy weight for local residents.
- Identify resources and community partners to facilitate implementation of recommended population based strategies and interventions.
