    About The Convergence Partnership

    In 2006, a collaboration of funders came together to create the Healthy Eating Active Living Convergence Partnership, with the shared goal of changing policies and environments to better achieve the vision of healthy people living in healthy places. The steering committee includes representatives from The California Endowment, Kaiser Permanente, Nemours, The Kresge Foundation, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention serve as critical technical advisors on the committee. '/>"/>
