Center for Disease Control and Prevention: Training for States on Winnable Battles

by:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)is a United States federal agency under the Department of Health and Human Services. The CDC's work is driven by the need to protect public health and safety through the provision of information that enhances health decisions and promotes health partnerships with state health departments and other organizations.

The CDC's mission is to collaborate and create expertise, information, and tools that people and communities need in order to protect their health, specifically through health promotion, disease, injury and disability prevention, and finally preparedness for new health threats.

As a part of the CDC's drive to achieve its goals and objectives, the agency has recently established the Training for States on Winnable Battles program.

c) Reduce age-adjusted proportion of obese adults

d) Reduce proportion of obese children and adolescents   (continued...)
