Health Care Without Harm and Boston Public Health Commission Honored for Sugar-Sweetened Beverage Initiative
Date:7/12/2013

Boston, MA (PRWEB) July 12, 2013

Health Care Without Harm and the Boston Public Health Commission were honored at the 2013 annual conference of the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), for developing and implementing a program that demonstrates exemplary and replicable qualities in response to a local public health need. The Boston Hospital Sugar-Sweetened Beverage (SBB) Learning Network was one of 38 public health programs developed nationwide in collaboration with a public health department and selected to receive NACCHO’s Model Practice Award.

The Boston Hospital Sugar-Sweetened Beverage Learning Network brought together Boston health care organizations in a collaborative yet competitive environment to reduce obesity rates by reducing access to SSBs and increasing access to healthier tap water as a part of a comprehensive Healthy Food in Health Care Program. Over a 14-month period, 10 participating hospitals successfully employed a variety of strategies to reduce access to and promotion of SSBs within their institutions. Hospital representatives participated in regular meetings, through which they received technical assistance and resources, shared progress and best practices, and addressed challenges and obstacles in a peer-learning forum.

“We’re honored to join Health Care Without Harm in accepting this award,” said Dr. Barbara Ferrer, Executive Director of the Boston Public Health Commission. “Overconsumption of sugar-sweetened beverages is literally a growing problem for people in America, and we need to develop collaborative and creative strategies that make our food environment healthier. Our learning network is a fantastic example of how we can work together towards a common goal that still allows for customized approaches among our partners
