New York's Obesity Prevention Plan

Return to contents

The New York State Department of Health has developed the first-ever New York State Strategic Plan for Overweight and Obesity Prevention. The Plan is the product of a broad collaborative effort to identify strategies to promote and increase opportunities for physical activity and healthy eating to prevent and to reduce overweight and obesity across the age span.

The plan is the result of work and an extensive process involving comments and input from hundreds of stakeholders and interested residents across the State. Their insights provided substance and shape to this Plan, and a consensus that we know what needs to be done and, importantly, that the community has the will to make change.
