About Us

About the Framework:
The Center for Training and Research Translation (Center TRT) created its evaluation framework as a resource for practitioners working in obesity prevention. Practitioners can use the framework to develop evaluation logic models for any policy and environmental change intervention and for any stage in the intervention process.

Center for Training and Research Translation (Center TRT)
The Center for Training and Research Translation (Center TRT) is supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity (DNPAO) and is located within the UNC Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention, a CDC Prevention Research Center. The Center TRT's mission is to enhance the public health impact of state and community obesity prevention efforts by providing the training and evidence public health practitioners need to improve nutrition and physical activity behaviors, environments, and policies in ways that are equitable, efficient, and sustained over time.
