Telephone surveys of all municipalities, all school administrative units and all non-institutional hospitals.

  7. Evaluation of Local HMPs Local HMPs • Local HMP Outcome Surveys-- in 2003- telephone survey; 2005 paper booklet survey- to understand state resources use, policy or environmental change outputs and activities implemented by the local HMPs • Qualitative Evaluation of local HMPs- 2003- focus groups with Partnership Directors and School Health Coordinators to understand coalition building - opportunities and challenges • Lead Agency Key Informant Interviews-2004- in-depth interviews with lead agency directors and superintendents to understand experience with the state and local HMP

Individual Program Component Evaluations Completed- 2004/2005 • MCVHP Worksite Pilot Project Evaluation- 3 studies- Heart Check, Wellness Coordinator Interviews, Employee Surveys • Youth Advocacy Coordinator Key Informant Interviews • LifeSkills Implementation Evaluation- (low response rate) • Tobacco Treatment Training - Follow-up Survey Some earlier studies had low participation rates and therefore provide qualitative insights- Physical Activity Action Kits, No Buts!, Tobacco Free Athletes, CATCH

  9. Findings Show Local HMP Initiative is Working! • Successful raising additional funding- $2.8 million in 2004 • Established high functioning coalitions • Working toward outcomes of policy and environmental change to reduce tobacco use, increase physical activity and improve nutrition • School/Community partnership is working • Reaching out to other organizations in the community • Creating, nurturing and maintaining coalitions takes time and commitment

  10. Challenges to Success • Uncertain funding- hard to keep people committed • Unclear goals, expectations in the beginning • Mixed messages from state • Schools struggle with competing priorities • Time is precious!
