Obesity Integration Project Summary

John Hickenlooper and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.CDPHE has named obesity one of Colorado's 10 Winnable Battles and charged the Prevention Services Division with planning and implementing strategies to reduce and reverse the weight of the state. PSD's Obesity Integration Project is a rapid response exercise to prioritize strategies that will make the greatest impact on Colorado. Please review this OIP Brief prepared for Gov. Hickenlooper and CDPHE Executive Director Chris Urbina and contact Andrea Hoaglin or Celeste Schoenthaler to gather more information or discuss areas for collaboration in this important effort to prevent and reduce obesity in Colorado.
