Indiana Division of Nutrition and Physical Activity
The role of the DNPA is to:
• Provide statewide leadership that prioritizes nutrition and physical activity policies as well as environmental changes across Indiana in all settings and special populations.
• Support the nation’s efforts to address public health policies and establish both successful and sustainable interventions for physical activity and nutrition needs.
• Maintain a comprehensive surveillance system for the ongoing, systematic collection of nutrition, physical activity and obesity data, as well as policy and environmental change information.
• Encourage and support effective education and promotion programs, advocate for adequate program funding and promote both policy and environmental changes that help Hoosiers eat better and be more physically active.
