Press release for initial funding of Faithful Families Eating Smart and Moving More, February 2008

Faithful Families has been accepted as a "Practice-Tested Intervention" by the Center of Excellence for Training and Research Translation (Center TRT) at UNC Chapel Hill. Center TRT, in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Nutrition and Physical Activity Program to Prevent Obesity and Other Chronic Diseases, has developed a process for reviewing, translating and disseminating interventions. This process is applied to obesity prevention interventions that have been tested through research studies or have been developed and evaluated in practice. Interventions are recommended by expert reviewers and CDC for dissemination. Faithful Families is the first faith-based intervention to achieve this status.

Faithful Families Eating Smart and Moving More was selected as the signature project for the Southern Regional Center for Excellence in Nutrition Education and Obesity Prevention. You can learn more about this work here.
