Government and Non-Profit Organizations Support Healthy Eating and Active Living

Although Colorado remains one of the leanest states in the nation, rates of obesity are on the rise. Non-profits like LiveWell Colorado and Weigh & Win from Kaiser Permanente and the Tri-County Health Department's "Communities Putting Prevention to Work" are just a few that offer significant city-wide policy, systems and environmental changes in schools and communities.
