Oregon Healthy Growth Survey
Cate Wilcox, MPH, and Bruce Gutelius, MD, MPH, of the Oregon Health Authority Public Health Division compiled an Oregon Healthy Growth Survey for 2012. This survey was created based on information collected during the 2011 and 2012 school years and highlights obesity as a public health issue.
While the Oregon Health Authority Public Health Division spear-headed this report, they relied upon the Center for Prevention and Public Health, the Maternal and Child Health Section, and student interns and dental hygienists to collect data and assist in compiling the report. Among the student interns were our very own Lucy Glaize and Joanna Helm who assisted in gathering height and weight measurements of children.
