The Communities and Schools Together (CAST) study seeks to build a collaborative school-community partnership to discover researched solutions to local obesity health risks for children. Data are collected from an elementary school district with an enrollment of 3,000 students in a suburban/rural community in Oregon. The study collects data on local social, built environment, and food environment influences and factors related to child health; develops and evaluates a parent health intervention program; and documents program processes, research methods, and findings for ongoing dissemination and replication of the CAST program.
