Review for Changelab Solutions, Oakland, CA, USA
ChangeLab Solutions is an unusual -- and extremely valuable -- institution. On the one hand, it's a think tank, bringing together professors, advocates, researchers and policy wonks to put together the best available model policies to address the most urgent public heath crises of our time: the epidemics of obesity and diabetes, the ongoing scourge of tobacco use, etc. But ChangeLab then takes those policies and helps governments implement them, providing technical assistance at all steps. They deploy their resources wisely, through webinars and over the phone -- and they have national reach as well as local expertise. For those seeking a public health NGO, this is one very worthy recipient.
