This year’s Prevention System Quality Index reports on 21 policy and program indicators related to tobacco, alcohol, healthy eating, physical activity, ultraviolet radiation, environmental carcinogens, occupational carcinogens and infectious agents.
This presentation will focus primarily on findings and opportunities related to topics that are new in the 2016 report and are of potential interest to public health staff:  food literacy development in secondary schools, use of active transportation to or from work, shade policies in local municipalities and radon levels in residences.
