Montana's Obesity Prevention Plan

Return to contents

The Montana Nutrition and Physical Activity Program (NAPA), has initiated a planning process for a new state plan to prevent obesity. NAPA operates through a partnership between the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Service and Montana State University, and support for Montanas effort to draft a state plan comes from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CDC recommends that Montanans consider evidence-based strategies designed to impact six behaviors that evidence has shown prevent/reduce obesity and contribute to health.
