PLEASE PARTICIPATE!! Survey: Childhood Obesity from The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), Maternal and Child Health (MCH) program

Posted over 6 years ago by Janel Saunders

This survey is currently closed. Thank you

Dear Colleagues,

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), Maternal and Child Health (MCH) program selected early childhood obesity prevention (ECOP) as one of nine MCH priorities. As you know, childhood overweight and obesity are serious public health problems, which require attention prior to conception, during pregnancy, throughout the earliest years of life, and in multiple sectors, settings, and environments. The development of overweight and obesity early in life (ages 0-5) presents increased risk for obesity throughout childhood and adulthood. 

The purpose of this survey is to gain a better understanding from health care professionals regarding existing practices for ECOP (including infants and children ages 0-5; pregnant women; and women of reproductive age); needs for ECOP professional development; interest level to participate in professional development opportunities; and preferred delivery methods for professional development. The survey takes approximately 10-20 minutes to complete and will be open through Friday, August 24, 2012. Your responses are extremely important and invaluable to guide early childhood obesity prevention efforts. 

Thank you in advance for taking the time to complete this anonymous survey. Feel free to send the survey link to other health care professionals who might be willing to provide input. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Tracy Miller, Early Childhood Obesity Prevention Specialist, (
