Meeting the 4th Friday each month at 8:30am-9:30am this new coalition focuses on increasing healthy behaviors by utilizing campaigns and preexisting programs/evidence-based strategies to target youth’s weekly physical activity levels and adult obesity rates. A past activity and nutrition coalition was established in 2003 and ran for many years, but has been inactive for the past couple of years. Our goal is to reignite a fire and passion for a healthy lifestyle in the community.
Current Action Items
- Narrowing down which strategies are feasible, going to make a large impact, and are needed in the community
- Promote free or low cost activities already happening in the county
