Regional Outreach Regional Outreach

The program is designed as a powerful grass-root movement tool to provide/deliver educational information and technical assistance to local communities in order to assist development of local coalition and community-based plans in terms of healthy living, healthy life choices, and overweight and obesity prevention.

Our program uses the Public Health Preparedness Districts as a model. ISDH mini-grants (2004), community health centers, WIC clinics, MCH clinics, and local health departments are the baseline for initial outreach contacts.

Outreach Program Goals

  1. Build state capacity by assisting counties to establish an infrastructure of support.
  2. Mobilize families, schools, and communities to create opportunities to choose healthy life styles that promote a healthy quality of life of families and communities.
  3. Promote policies and environmental changes that support healthy eating habits and physical activities.
