The Obesity Subcommittee was formed in response to identifying decreasing obesity as a health priority in the 2014 Community Health Assessment.  Thus far, the Obesity Subcommittee has focused on the following action items:

Future work will include conducting a needs assessment around childcare food environments, partnering with Chatham Hospital to expand the availability of healthy hospital food, establishing community gardens, expanding the Safe Routes to School program, and establishing a series of point of decision prompts to increase physical activity.
