Between 2014 and 2018, WYSAC evaluated the federal grant, State Public Health Actions to Prevent and Control Diabetes, Heart Disease, Obesity and Associated Risk Factors and Promote School Health (1305) for the New Mexico Department of Health. WYSAC is continuing this partnership by evaluating New Mexico’s work on the CDC grant Improving the Health of Americans through Prevention and Management of Diabetes and Heart Disease and Stroke (1815).
WYSAC provides overarching guidance and technical expertise to NMDoH in developing, implementing, and evaluating the 1305 and 1815 projects. Specifically, WYSAC develops logic models and evaluation plans, facilitates the use of data to improve programming, documents program implementation and successes, and facilitates sustainability planning. This project uses both quantitative and qualitative data to guide and measure project progress and outcomes.
