The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity (DNPAO) is excited to bring a great resource to people working in communities that face health disparities.

The CDC’s Health Equity and Obesity Toolkit’s primary focus is on how to create policy, systems, and environmental changes that will reduce obesity disparities and achieve health equity.

Specifically, it aims to help state health departments and their partners to work with communities to implement effective responses to obesity in areas that are facing health disparities, like many Latino communities across the country.

With how-to information followed by real-world examples, the toolkit is a valuable resource for anyone, not just health departments, looking to improve the health of a region facing health disparities.
