Altarum Institute CPHMC Evaluation Report: Cohort #2

By Altarum Institute

NWA contracted with Altarum’s Center for Food and Nutrition to conduct an evaluation of Cohorts 1 and 2 to understand the CPHMC project experience and factors that facilitated or hindered implementation of the project activities and achievement of objectives. A mixed methods approach was used to explore:

  1. The extent to which local projects achieved increased collaboration across partners, increased capacity to implement PSE change, and increased messaging on project activities and PSE changes;
  2. The extent to which projects achieved objectives to increase access to environments with healthy food or beverage options and increase opportunities for chronic disease prevention and care; and
  3. How local projects pursuing common secondary objectives achieved their objectives, including identifying the activities and circumstances that lead to the most successful implementation, as well as challenges they experienced.

The primary data sources used for the evaluation included early and late- implementation web surveys and interviews completed with all project leadership teams and onsite visits with interviews and observations in a subset of eight projects. In addition, local project CAPs and progress reports were incorporated into the evaluation for all Cohort 2 projects.
