Samuels & Associates produces research and evaluation, policy analysis and advocacy, and strategic planning and program development on projects that emphasize health promotion and disease prevention, women's health and health disparities. Much of our recent work has focused on preventing and reducing obesity by changing the environment for nutrition and physical activity. Through environmental assessments and community surveys, we have been instrumental in defining the context and developing research to support advocacy for getting junk foods and beverages out of schools and neighborhoods. Through program and policy recommendations, we have helped communities design interventions to improve the choices for healthy eating and physical activity. We have evaluated communities, school districts and statewide programs. Our reports and policy briefs inform decision-makers about evidence-based strategies and model policies and programs for improving health.
