The HEAL (Healthy Eating and Active Living) Cities and Towns Campaign provides training and technical assistance to help municipal officials adopt policies that improve their communities’ access to physical activity and healthy food. Making the healthy choice the easy choice is essential to addressing Colorado’s adult and childhood obesity epidemic, a clear toll on both our health and economy. The state spent $1.637 billion treating diseases and conditions related to obesity in 2009, with further costs to businesses for lost productivity and absenteeism.
A partnership between LiveWell Colorado and the Colorado Municipal League, the Campaign is funded through a grant from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s Cancer, Cardiovascular Disease and Pulmonary Disease Grant Program and supported by Kaiser Permanente.
