The Western Region Public Health Training Center (WRPHTC) is hosting its first virtual conference to bring together public health workers, researchers, and educators to discuss and develop the skills needed to tackle disparities in diet-related disease and food access. The goal of the conference is to present and practice strategies in the areas of assessment, policy development, and assurance that can promote the development of local food systems and improve community health, particularly on tribal lands.

The conference will include presentations on policy development and advocacy, selecting outcome measures for program planning and evaluation, asset building and fiscal management, and creating sustainable food systems. Skill-building workshops will also be used to practice skills such as writing policy briefs, using logic models, and developing a program budget.
