A little more about the event…

-The Arkansas Coalition for Obesity Prevention (ArCOP) received funding from the University of Alabama at Birmingham Midsouth Transdisciplinary Collaborative Center (TCC) for Health Disparities Research (UAB Midsouth TCC) to implement the Mayors Mentoring Mayors (3M) project in 2015. This UAB Midsouth TCC grant addressed health disparities impacting obesity in six Midsouth states. TCC has invited ArCOP to present the 3M project, in the second phase of this grant, using a Multi-State approach.

-The Mid-South TCC and ArCOP targeted the geographic areas including Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee to expand the 3M reach across the five additional states using the ArCOP Growing Healthy Community model.

-This Multi-State 3M Summit is a collaboration of Mayors, City Elected Officials and their community’s team members sharing exciting work of each state’s successes, lessons learned, barriers and best practices.
