I am thrilled to announce that Lucy Gomez-Feliciano has joined the Consortium to Lower Obesity in Chicago Children (CLOCC) as our Community and School Programs Manager. Many of you have known Lucy for a long time, and she knows the CLOCC network quite well!
Lucy served as a member of CLOCC's Executive Committee and co-chaired what was then the Healthy Communities Working Group. For those of you who don't know her, Lucy was the Director of Early Learning and Health at Logan Square Neighborhood Association for over 15 years. During her time at LSNA she served as project director on a joint initiative with LSNA, CLOCC, the Chicago Park District, and Active Transportation Alliance. That project resulted in the Park District's healthy vending policy and to significant walkability improvements in Humboldt Park.
Please join me in welcoming Lucy. I know she is looking forward to meeting and working with many of you as she takes on this new role and leads our work in communities and schools and helps set the direction of our approach to social determinants of childhood obesity. Lucy can be reached at
