They face poverty and lack access to healthy food, safe places to play, social services, and quality early care and education. That results in high rates of obesity and disease and poor academic and life outcomes.

But there is hope for change.

Communities across the nation are working to build this culture of health, where everyone has a fair and just opportunity to be as healthy as possible.
