Physical Activity Promotion

This program focuses on obesity prevention initiatives working with communities to create environments that support healthy choices. Bringing evidence-based strategies for healthy living into schools, childcare and out-of-school programs, health care practices, and workplaces reaching children and adults where they live, learn, work, and play. Our programs use evidence-based strategies to increase healthy eating and physical activity among children from birth to 18. The multi-setting model allows us to reach childcare programs, schools, out-of-school programs, and health care practices and unite them in the goal of encouraging children to adopt healthy habits that will last a lifetime.
