Our mission is to to reduce preventative disease burden in Colorado by addressing obesity and promoting active lifestyles

Signature Issue: Tackle Obesity Among Colorado Youth and Adults

Obesity is an epidemic worldwide. Colorado’s adult obesity rate has doubled since 1990. More than half of Colorado adults are obese or overweight and more than 1 in 4 children are obese or overweight (CDPHE, 2017). Preventable diseases associated with obesity including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and certain forms of cancer result in death, suffering, and cost millions of dollars in associated costs.

Together with public and private partners from across the state, we are working to end this epidemic.
