Making the Most of Your Program Logic Model
Tuesday, March 14, 2:30 p.m. ET
Sponsor:CDC's Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention
Join us for a 20-minute coffee break on innovative ways to use a logic model for program planning and evaluation. Logic models are an often misunderstood, yet important tool for program planning and evaluation. More than just a series of columns and arrows, the process of creating a logic model can help public health programs elucidate their underlying theory of change and refine their ‘elevator pitch’ to describe to others the program and its value. Logic models are an important tool to focus local program evaluations, identify evaluation questions and indicators, and report findings. This presentation will illustrate how a simple ‘road map’ logic model can serve multiple purposes. Using a DHDSP program logic model as an example, participants will gain insight into how a logic model can be used for planning and evaluation throughout a program’s lifecycle.Presenter: Ashley Marshall, MPH
