WHO WE ARE
StrongPeople envisions a diverse community of individuals who are fit, strong, and healthy; in turn these empowered individuals become agents of change for their families, communities, and beyond.
Together with our partners, StrongPeople will accomplish this by:
- Creating, evaluating, and sustaining transformative community-based nutrition, physical activity, and obesity prevention programs and civic engagement initiatives that include relevant policy, system, and environmental (PSE) changes, with the goal of promoting a culture of health and supporting health equity.
- Conducting innovative, translational research including community-based interventions and dissemination research with at-risk populations and in underserved settings.
