Join us on Thursday, September 27 at 1:00 p.m. ET to learn about the impact of laws and policies on increasing fruit and vegetable intake and making food accessible and affordable. This is the first in a series of webinars about the role of law and policy in helping to achieve Healthy People 2020 objectives. You’ll hear from the authors of a new report on using law and policy interventions to increase fruit and vegetable intake, and learn how a large city used regulation to improve availability of staple foods, including fruits and vegetables in retail settings.
About the Law and Health Policy Project
The goal of the Healthy People Law and Health Policy project is to highlight how evidence-based legal and policy interventions and strategies can facilitate progress toward Healthy People objectives by improving community health and well-being. In addition to reports and webinars, the project includes “Bright Spots,” or success stories, that highlight successful policy interventions that have led to improved health outcomes.
The project is a collaboration between the HHS Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the CDC Foundation, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
