Programs to Reduce Obesity in High Obesity Areas

The purpose of this pilot project is to fund Land Grant Colleges and Universities to conduct intervention strategies through existing cooperative extension and outreach services at the county level.

These strategies will improve physical activity and nutrition, reduce obesity and prevent and


control diabetes, heart disease, and stroke in areas where adult obesity rates are high.

Residents of these communities may have less access to healthy foods and fewer opportunities to be physically active.

If improvements are made and continued, these programs can have long-term positive impacts on the health of residents in these counties.

The initiative can reinforce the health of the community as a critical determinant of individual health and well-being.
