Groundbreaking National Program to Reverse Obesity Expands to 50 Locations
Date:3/1/2012

BOSTON, March 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The second phase of a national effort to combat obesity, "Collaborate for Healthy Weight," is being announced today by the National Initiative for Children's Healthcare Quality (NICHQ), in partnership with the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA).  Forty new teams of healthcare professionals and community leaders, from Pasadena to Philadelphia, have been selected, significantly increasing participation in this unique initiative. The new groups join 10 original teams that have been working since June 2011 to improve obesity prevention and treatment in their communities.

The 50 teams now participating in Collaborate for Healthy Weight are each composed of representatives from the primary care, public health, and community sectors, working together as never before, using quality improvement methods to identify, test, and implement high-potential changes coordinated across all sectors.

"We congratulate the 40 teams joining us in this unique community-based effort.  We are confident that they, building on the accomplishments of our initial ten teams, will pioneer breakthrough solutions to this serious public health problem.  We know they will help build momentum to a tipping point as communities come together to make ours a healthier nation," said Charles Homer, MD, MPH, president and CEO of NICHQ.

The U.S. has the highest rate of obesity among all developed nations. At current rates, three in four Americans will become overweight or obese by 2020.

"Collaborate for Healthy Weight is a unique initiative that fosters innovative local partnerships across the nation to make a real difference in the battle against obesity and health inequity," said Mary Wakefield, PhD, RN, HRSA's Administrator. "We look forward to spreading the ideas generated through these projects to other communities throughout the country."
