Logic models are mechanism that can be utilized for evaluating, communicating, managing, describing, and planning health interventions or programs. A logic model is a visual representation depicting relationships between the intended effects of an intervention program and planned activities. In addition, logic model tools can be helpful in stating assumptions underlying expectations that a program can work. A logic model tool can frame the context in which programs operate. This discussion focuses on a data-driven approach to a strategic program design addressing the public health challenge of obesity which can be a contributing factor to heart disease and stroke. A logic model depicting epidemiological data supporting a strategic education intervention program is included.
