    Informing with Evidence: When to Disseminate during the Federal Budget Cycle
    The federal budget process provides an important opportunity for researchers to share evidence with policymakers and inform their funding decisions. At any given point in a year, policymakers are handling budgets for three fiscal years—evaluating and reporting on last year’s budget, implementing the current year’s budget, and preparing for the coming year’s budget. This timeline depicts the key steps in the budget and appropriations process, as well as entry points for researchers and advocates to educate policymakers.
    Integrating Systems and Sectors Toward Obesity Solutions: Proceedings of a Workshop--in Brief

    The Roundtable on Obesity Solutions of the Health and Medicine Division of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine held a virtual public workshop, Integrating Systems and Sectors Toward Obesity Solutions, on April 6, 2020 (Part I), and June 30, 2020 (Part II). The workshop explored complex systems and contributing factors that can influence obesity, and shared real-life examples of applying systems thinking and systems science approaches to addressing obesity and population health and well-being.

    Introduction to Program Evaluation for Public Health Programs: A Self-Study Guide

    This document is a “how to” guide for planning and implementing evaluation activities. The manual, based on CDC’s Framework for Program Evaluation in Public Health, is intended to assist managers and staff of public, private, and community public health programs to plan, design, implement and use comprehensive evaluations in a practical way. The strategy presented in this manual will help assure that evaluations meet the diverse needs of internal and external stakeholders. Such needs include assessing and documenting program implementation, outcomes, efficiency and cost-effectiveness of activities, and taking action based on evaluation results to increase the impact of programs.

    Legal & Policy Strategies for Health Care & Food System Partners

    Legal & Policy Strategies for Health Care & Food System Partners presents a helpful framework for food system collaborations plus legal and policy considerations for three types of food system interventions:

    • Addressing food insecurity for individuals through connections to nutrition assistance programs;
    • Establishing a new business model in which institutions embrace healthier food purchasing choices; and
    • Creating strategies to invest in local food production and retailers.

    Liver Cancer Prevention: Putting Strategies into Action

    This document was developed to:

    1. Increase awareness and knowledge among public health professionals, healthcare providers, and community members in the area of comprehensive cancer prevention and control about the need to address viral hepatitis as a risk factor for liver cancer.
    2. Raise awareness of liver cancer prevention as a priority for National Comprehensive Cancer Control Program (NCCCP) awardees with high-burden populations.
    3. Provide guidance to NCCCP awardees on how to increase knowledge and awareness among their coalitions and partners about liver cancer prevention and its major risk factors.
    4. Document promising strategies for the prevention of liver cancer that can be easily adapted and implemented by NCCCP awardees across different settings.
    LIVESTRONG Foundation

    The LIVESTRONG Foundation, a CCC National partner, unites, inspires and empowers people affected by cancer.

    Local Implementation and Capacity of Cancer Prevention and Control: A National Review of Local Health Department Activities

    This report details the national landscape of current local cancer prevention, education, screening, and control activities. This publication and the resources herein were developed by the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) through an American Cancer Society sub-award funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    Local Implementation Capacity among National Comprehensive Cancer Control Program (NCCCP) Coalitions: Assessment Results with Key Figures

    Coordination and collaboration among local health departments (LHDs), their multi-sector stakeholders, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Comprehensive Cancer Control Program (NCCCP)-funded coalitions are essential to implementing state cancer control plans at the local level. Coordination and collaboration are also essential for widely disseminating evidence-based practices for systems and environmental change strategies that promote health, support healthy behaviors, and facilitate community-clinical linkages to reduce the cancer burden. However, synergy between LHDs and state-based NCCCP coalitions on the local implementation of comprehensive cancer control (CCC) is lacking.

    In 2014, the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) and the American Cancer Society (ACS) conducted a survey to better understand factors that hinder partnerships among LHDs, other local stakeholders, and NCCCP-funded coalitions in each state and to identify effective strategies for raising LHD awareness of NCCCP efforts and facilitating linkages between LHDs/state CCC coalitions for joint planning and local implementation efforts.

    Specifically, this assessment had the following goals:

    • Uncover the current local implementation capacity of state CCC coalitions and extent of collaboration with LHDs and other stakeholders;
    • Determine facilitators and barriers to coordination among LHDs, other key local partners, and state CCC coalitions on local implementation of CCC, including efforts to carry out evidence-based policy, systems, and environmental change (PSE) and community-clinical linkages;
    • Determine capacity-building assistance needs, topics of interest, and desired channels for receiving technical assistance among LHDs and state CCC coalitions related to local implementation of cancer control; and
    • Inform solutions and identify opportunities to bridge state-local cancer prevention and control efforts and decrease barriers to coordination among LHDs, NCCCP-funded coalitions, and other key local stakeholders.
