Working closely with stakeholders, the Childhood Obesity Intervention Cost-Effectiveness Study (CHOICES) research team (PI: Stephen Gortmaker, PhD) collected the best available evidence for more than 40 promising interventions for preventing childhood obesity, then projected implementation costs for scaling them up for statewide or national efforts.

As results of the CHOICES study began to published in peer-reviewed journals, an online platform was needed in order to disseminate its findings to decision makers looking for programs and policies that yield the best return on their implementation costs.

HCC built a dynamic website ( where CHOICES’ latest research, news, and collaboration opportunities can be easily accessed by people who make funding and programming decisions. Clear, concise content explains the underlying research methodology, and an updated, refreshed logo establishes consistency across the project’s print and other materials.
