Through funding from Hoag Hospital, the Healthy Cities program targets two low-income underserved communities, Garden Grove and Westminster. Healthy eating and active living is promoted in the effort to reduce childhood obesity among Latino and Asian populations. The team provides nutrition education, peer training and support, physical activity, and health promotion at community events, schools, and churches in 10 neighborhoods surrounding Title I schools in Garden Grove and Westminster. The program also garners behavioral change pledges and conducts a 3-6 month follow-up with program participants.
