RWJF catalyzes efforts to prevent childhood obesity. Through the NGA’s Healthy Kids, Healthy Americaprogram, governors in 15 states are creating and implementing plans to tackle the epidemic.While each participating state is working hard, we’re especially excited about what’s happening inMississippi. State leaders have embraced the cause of obesity prevention with a passion, despite a myriadof economic and social challenges, including restoring the Gulf Coast region battered by Hurricane Katrina. The Mississippi obesity-prevention effort may be the most integrated and collaborative in the nation, with education leaders, the public health community and philanthropies working hand in handwith government officials. Mississippi’s decision to include private foundations as an equal partner is unique, and I believe it’s a very smart approach.
Mississippi’s Coordinated School Health Program (CHSP) is a collaborative effort between the Mississippi Department of Education Office of Healthy Schools and the Mississippi Department of Health. Mississippi receives funding from CDC’s Division of Adolescent and School Health to promote coordinated school health, provide HIV prevention education, and conduct the Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS).
