National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month - Resources

By Presidential Declaration, President Barack Obama has declared September National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month.  To support the campaign, there are several resources posted on both the Presidential Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition site and a site unique for the month, the Healthier Kids, Brighter Futures site.

In particular, for health care communicators, there is a communications toolkit that is available for download.  In the toolkit, users can find factsheets, press release templates and sample public service announcements.  To help promote the cause, as well, a series of profile pictures have also been created to allow users to download and show their support for the cause via social media profile pics.

There's much more on the sites, but for related efforts to counter childhood obesity and improve healthy options in schools, check out the Colorado LiveWell site.
