Summary

The Healthcare Workgroup operates with the purpose of influencing healthcare systems, including health plans and providers, to implement policy and environmental strategies that contribute to the prevention and reduction of childhood obesity. This workgroup provides a forum for a number of healthcare stakeholders, including but not limited to hospitals, community clinics, insurers, physicians, universities, and community-based organizations.
