I am pleased to announce the SNEB staff has been restructured to focus on key areas of membership and communications.
Dear SNEB members: I hope that 2017 continues to treat you well and that this message finds you in good health. As we embark on realizing our vision of healthy communities, we have a great team to help us achieve our goals, who are not just qualified but are very passionate with what we are passionate about. You have already heard that Rachel Daeger, CAE has stepped into the role of executive director following Jackie Williams’ long service to the Society. Rachel has been working with SNEB for the past six years touching all areas from advocacy to webinars. She has worked for membership-focused organizations since graduating with a degree in journalism from Indiana University in 1985. Two years ago she earned her Certified Association Executive designation. "SNEB members are so passionate about the vision of healthy communities that it inspires me to do my best every day," says Rachel.
Joining the staff as Director of Membership is Kim Paugh, CAE. Kim's name may be familiar to some members. She worked with SNEB for a short time when she joined Raybourn Group in 2006. Her focus will be on membership recruitment and retention. "I've always enjoyed working with and connecting to our members and am proud to be back with the SNEB team," Kim says.
Also new to the staff is Communications Assistant Kayla Jenkins. Kayla is familiar with the Society and our various communications strategies from her previous work with SNEB as an intern for the past seven months. A recent graduate of Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis with a bachelor's in public relations, Kayla is committed to contributing to the continued growth of our Society. "I'm driven by the impact our members have on healthy communities throughout the world," Kayla said.
A familiar name and face is Jennifer Miller, who has been our Membership and Meetings Coordinator for over a year. An expert on all things related to membership and conference, Jennifer has been with Raybourn Group for three and a half years. "Since joining the SNEB team, members have been very friendly and inviting and I look forward to another successful year with SNEB," says Jennifer.
Sheila King, CMP also remains with the SNEB team as Director of Meetings. A Certified Meeting Professional, Sheila will continue to plan the Annual Conference. She's been with Raybourn Group International for five years, planning various successful meetings and events. "I truly enjoy working with the SNEB volunteers. They are so passionate about their industry and association," she continued. "It is great to work with such an amazing group of people!"
Join me in welcoming the new members of SNEB's team.

February Article Collection — Cardiovascular Health
Rand Corporation via EuerkAlert!
Convincing low-cost lunch truck operators and their customers to embrace healthier food is possible, but regulation of menus and better marketing may be needed to make long-lasting changes, according to a new RAND Corporation study. An effort to encourage "loncheras" in Los Angeles to provide healthier meals to their predominately Latino customers showed that such change can happen.
The purpose of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to estimate the prevalence of personal weight control attempts (weight loss and/or maintenance) worldwide and to identify correlates, personal strategies used and the underlying motives.
Health Technology Assessment
The Families for Health intervention did not help overweight and obese children (aged 6–11 years) to manage their weight.
This study aimed to examine (a) whether mindfulness skills were associated with higher quality of life through lower body shame for treatment-seeking children/adolescents with overweight and obesity and (b) whether this indirect effect was moderated by children/adolescents' age and gender.
Work and Occupations
Health promotion programs have become increasingly common in U.S. workplaces, yet little research has examined the unintended and potentially negative consequences of these initiatives. Overweight and obese employees face widespread prejudice and pervasive discrimination in employment settings, and this study investigates whether workplace health promotion may lead to more negative outcomes for these workers.
Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics
Identifying current major dietary sources of sodium can enhance strategies to reduce excess sodium intake, which occurs among 90 percent of U.S. school-aged children.
