Welcome to LiveWell Colorado’s new blog, which we hope will engage, inform and excite you about the fight against obesity we’re leading in Colorado.
As you know, obesity is a complicated issue. Reversing our nation’s growing obesity rates is not simply about encouraging individuals to eat better and move more. It is also about removing barriers to healthy choices, and ensuring that every person ‚Äì in our state and across the nation ‚Äì has the opportunity to choose healthy eating and active living in the places they live, learn work, and play.
This blog will update you on hot topics in obesity prevention, inform you about what we’re doing to make a difference, and engage you to get involved in this movement to make Colorado healthier.
By way of background, LiveWell Colorado is a nonprofit organization committed to reducing and preventing obesity by promoting healthy eating and active living. For more information about LiveWell Colorado, our key strategies, and to access to our “Toolbox” of obesity prevention resources, please visit other sections of ourwebsite.
Obesity weighs on all of us. It takes a convergence of efforts from a variety of sectors to make this happen and each of us is part of the solution.
LiveWell Colorado is leading the movement to fight obesity in Colorado and we hope you will join us. I encourage you to follow this blog on the website, sign up for updates on our Facebook page, and to share the information with your friends and colleagues. Thanks!
