|Complete Streets - Infographic||
The city of Indianapolis adopted Indiana’s sixth Complete Streets policy on August 23, 2012. In honor of the success, the Indiana Cancer Consortium has released an infograph that models a Complete Street, details the health and economic benefit of active transportation, and illustrates how much of Indiana is now covered by a Complete Streets policy.
Complete Streets legislation ensures that transportation planners and engineers consistently design and operate the entire roadway with all users in mind including pedestrians, motorists, cyclists, mass transit riders, and those with disabilities. When “streets are complete,” alternative modes of transportation (walking, biking, etc.) are more attractive; physical activity is promoted; safety is improved for all users, and in the case of safe routes to school, safety is improved for children; and the unintended negative health outcomes of a less active lifestyle are minimized.
|Comprehensive Cancer Control Program Success Stories||
The Division of Cancer Prevention and Control is pleased to announce that four new National Comprehensive Cancer Control Program Success Stories are available online.
We congratulate the Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, and Wyoming CCC programs as well as the Geographic Health Equity Alliance (national network to impact tobacco and cancer related disparities) for using the success story application to write about their accomplishments in primary cancer prevention, policy, system and environmental change, and cancer survivorship. We encourage you to read these stories from your colleagues and to consider submitting one of your own.

|Controlling Junk Food and the Bottom Line: Findings from School Districts that have had Success||
The Controlling Junk Food and the Bottom Line project shares findings from eight school districts that have already implemented strong nutrition standards for snack and a la carte foods and beverages without significant loss of overall food-service profit. The Illinois Public Health Institute study explored district and school-level experiences through interviews conducted between December 2011 and April 2012. In total, 31 principals, food service directors, and staff from eight districts across the country shared their experiences and contributed their insights to the study. The study identified five overarching findings that may be particularly helpful for schools working to implement the new standards. More detail on the overall findings of the study can be located in the full study.
|COVID-19: Disproportionate Impact on Black Communities||
This webinar is part of County Health Rankings & Roadmaps’ special topic series, Health Equity and Social Solidarity in the Time of Pandemic: Strategies for COVID-19 Response and Recovery.
We know that before this pandemic arrived, not everyone had the same opportunity to live a long and healthy life. The COVID-19 crisis has clearly demonstrated these realities, as communities of color are experiencing a disproportionately high number of confirmed coronavirus cases and rate of death from the virus. This webinar explored how COVID-19 exposed existing disparities experienced by Black communities, the historical context, institutional and systemic racism, and how communities can begin to address these disparities now and during recovery with policy, systems, and environmental change.

SelfMade Health Network is dedicated to facilitating and celebrating change in our communities.
Part of our vision is to support our network members by pulling together data, recommendations and resources specifically to further expand the results-driven approaches making an impact in our communities. Evidence has proven that significant change to lower cancer rates and smoking use can be gained within vulnerable populations by discussing and addressing head-on the known environmental, sociological and financial impairments to health.
This page will be updated to feature SelfMade Health Network’s Determinants of Health Series. We encourage you to check back often as new sheets are published.
|Developing an Effective Evaluation Report: Setting the Course for Effective Program Evaluation||
This workbook applies the CDC Framework for Program Evaluation in Public Health to construct a final evaluation report. The Framework lays out a six-step process for the decisions and activities involved in planning and conducting an evaluation. While the Framework provides steps for program evaluation, the steps are not always linear and represent a more back-and-forth effort; some can be completed concurrently. In some cases, it will make sense to skip a step and go back to it. The important thing is to consider and use the steps to construct a final evaluation report within the specific context of your program.
A final evaluation report presents findings, conclusions, and recommendations. It has been said that a report is never truly final, unless the program is ending, because evaluation is an ongoing process. In this workbook, “final” refers to the term that funders often use to denote the last report of a funding period or the final report of a specific evaluation activity.
