During this early career grant, the University of North Carolina at Greensboro's project team, led by Dr. Noah Lenstra, will perform an in-depth analysis of how public libraries can work with community partners to promote healthy communities through healthy eating and active living programming. The research team will perform case studies in 19 strategically chosen communities across 15 states to produce and disseminate an evidence-based model of how public libraries form and sustain community partnerships. The research will answer: "How, why, and with what impacts do public libraries collaborate with others to co-develop programming around healthy eating and active living?"
