KCYA Student Health Behavior Evaluation

KCYA has bKansas City Young Audiences Logoeen delivering arts education programing to schools in the Kansas City area for over 50 years. From 2012 to 2014 I worked with KCYA to evaluate their obesity prevention intervention in a high-needs school district.

As part of this project, I provided subject matter expertise in nutrition and physical activity for the development of learning sessions, created assessment surveys for K-2nd grade youth, administered surveys in elementary school classrooms, developed and managed a dataset in SPSS, and conducted the analysis, providing results to the organization for tracking progress and deliverables to their funder, Blue Cross Blue Shield Kansas City (BCBSKC).
