Promoting healthy lifestyles for children & families

Preventing Childhood Obesity

Founded in 1999, the Center works with community groups to develop and evaluate programs to support healthy eating and active living, with a focus on children and families in diverse communities. Our collaborative approach maintains scientific rigor and is responsive to the real-world needs and concerns of our community partners. We produce reports and policy briefs that can further our community partners’ ability to succeed and we focus on outcomes that are meaningful to the communities we serve.
