Collaborate for Healthy Weight Progress Report: Fall 2012

Collaborate for Healthy Weight is a national project of the National Initiative for Children’s Healthcare Quality (NICHQ) and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and funded through the Prevention and Public Health Fund created by the Affordable Care Act. t brings together primary care providers, public health professionals, and leaders of community organizations to work across traditional professional borders to address obesity at the community level.

This report presents examples of how the ten Phase 1 multi-disciplinary teams are carrying out their work with creativity, commitment and shared passion for improving the health of their communities. We hope these stories inspire other communities to build strong partnerships and use the approaches pioneered here to take their own steps in reversing this epidemic.

 You can read even more stories about the Phase 1 and Phase 2 teams on the Collaborate for Healthy Weight website.
