Efforts to engage partners to develop a plan to guide statewide and local action to prevent obesity
There is no single or simple solution to the obesity epidemic. It’s a complex problem and there has to be a multifaceted approach. Policymakers, state and local organizations, business and community leaders, schools, childcare and healthcare professionals, and individuals must work together to create an environment that supports a healthy lifestyle.
