Announcing the next COAST/SEW seminar co-sponsored by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health and Society Scholars Program:
The UC Berkeley School of Public Health receives a Safeway grant to combat obesity! The grant will go toward funding the development of an online referral system - headed by COAST researcher, Kristine Madsen - which allows health providers to directly connect children at risk of obesity to local organizations and track their progress in the program. Read more about it here.
Congratulations to SEW investigator Patricia Crawford for receiving the 2013 David Kessler Award for Extraordinary Contribution to the Public's Health awarded by the California Center for Public Health Advocacy.
