Health Resources & Services Administration
The Health Resources and Services Administration Office of Planning, Analysis and Evaluation (HRSA/OPAE) will provide funding to support a Prevention Center for Healthy Weight (PC). The PC will plan, implement, and manage a nation-wide Healthy Weight Collaborative (HWC) as well as recruit and support communities and teams participating in the HWC. The PC will also serve as a gateway to quality information on the prevention and treatment of overweight and obesity in the context of integration of public and community health and primary care. This program seeks to provide and promote family-centered, community-based, coordinated care for children and families, and facilitate the development of community-based systems of services for such children and their families for the prevention and treatment of overweight and obesity.
