Delaware's Obesity Prevention Plan

Return to contents

Delaware HEAL was formed in 2009 with more than 100 members to reverse the tide of obesity and related chronic diseases among Delawareans by facilitating opportunities for physical activity and healthy eating. The coalition provides statewide leadership and coordination of physical activity and healthy nutrition programs, and serves as a catalyst for developing obesity prevention efforts.

The HEAL coalition developed and published a statewide comprehensive plan, Physical Activity, Nutrition & Obesity Prevention Comprehensive Plan: 2010-2014. Delaware HEAL meets quarterly, and holds an annual summit for its members and the public. The Division of Public Health is a member of the coalition, and provides administrative support.
