An entertaining and interactive presentation exploring a community based program evaluation that combats the rising population health issues of obesity and diabetes across overweight and obese regional communities - Mackay, Isaac and the Whitsundays.

Evaluation can be part of inspiring communities to healthier life changes and combatting major social epidemics. This presentation discusses evaluation of a collaborative "tribal" approach to behavioural change and how implementation science frameworks can highlight facilitators and barriers to program sustainability and impact from various stakeholder viewpoints. Key features are innovative translational research, community partnerships/ownership of outcomes and evaluation of a tribal innovation from beyond traditional perspectives.
