Indicator work for HEALTH’s Initiative for Healthy Weight
For the next three years, HEALTH will track ten Rhode Island cities and towns using the CDC’s 24 Recommended Community Strategies and Measurements to Prevent Obesity. Among the goals of this effort is curbing childhood obesity. ProvPlan is working to compile data and provide analysis to track progress in this effort. Along with HEALTH, we are also providing data and technical support to the Communities Supporting Healthy Lifestyles project. Olneyville Housing Corp recently became the first beneficiary of technical assistance, funding and other support under this potentially multi-year, multi-city project.
