It's Thursday afternoon, and the San Diego County Childhood Obesity Initiative's (COI) Action Plan Advisory Committee is meeting in CHIP's small conference room, working strategically to update the Call to Action, San Diego County Childhood Obesity Action Plan (Action Plan). Eleven partners representing HHSA, UC San Diego Center for Community Health, California Project LEAN, American Red Cross WIC, and Community Health Improvement Partners (CHIP) have been meeting monthly since May to revise the Action Plan.

The first Action Plan was developed in 2006 to raise awareness of childhood obesity and to provide recommended strategies for creating healthier communities. The document was revised in 2010 and will continue to be updated every four to five years. This year we are excited about the new format, which includes selection criteria for strategies; information on collective impact; a description of the COI accountability plan; and a glossary of terms. Another update that we are eager to share is the new Action Plan template, which will more clearly define how community members can impact childhood obesity through policies, systems, and environmental changes.

Once completed, the Action Plan will be available in April 2015, and will be used by domain work groups in selecting domain strategies and developing domain workplans. The Action Plan will be available in both English and Spanish, and will also be available on our website at http://www.ourcommunityourkids.org/.
