The Building Capacity for Obesity Prevention Project (BCOP) is a partnership between Case Western Reserve University (CWRU), Prevention Research Center for Healthy Neighborhoods (PRCHN), The Ohio State University, SNAP-Ed program; and the Ohio Department of Health, Creating Healthy Communities Program (CHC).
The BCOP project develops tools to help SNAP-Ed and CHC practitioners successfully implement and sustain community nutrition policy, systems, and environmental (PSE) interventions in rural and urban settings.
BCOP is focused on four community nutrition PSE areas:
BCOP developed a website, PSEREAD.org, that features four PSE READI assessment tools. PSEREADI.org also has an extensive online resource library of worksheets, toolkits, general resources, and a series of 20 videos featuring community nutrtion practitioners from across Ohio working in the four community nutrition PSE intervention areas.
