Policy/Communications Work Group

Through the work of partner agencies, the Policy/Communications Work Group aims to increase public awareness of sustaining healthy communities and supporting healthy lifestyles. The Missouri Farm to Table Bill was passed with assistance from several partner groups and this Work Group.

The Communications Work Group, which is now part of the Policy group, supports all of the MOCAN work groups and develops cohesive messaging for dissemination among stakeholders. This group develops strategies for delivering messages that work to improve nutrition and physical activity behaviors.

Conference calls

The Policy/Communications Work Group meets ad-hoc periodically.

Contact either Policy Workgroup Co-chair, Michelle Shickles or Kaitlin Brakke, to learn about joining the work group discussions.
