The Ozarks Regional YMCA received a community transformation grant to implement policy and environmental changes that promote physical activity, healthy eating, and smoke-free living, that will ultimately improve population-level health.

JSI has been contracted to evaluate this two-year initiative. JSI will implement a mixed-method approach to assess the impact the programs, policies, and environmental changes have had on residents' health as well as the overall awareness of these initiatives.
