Northwoods LEAN (Linking Education, Activity, and Nutrition): Pathways to Health
Oneida County will approach its obesity issue on many different levels. Community leaders with the Oneida County Health Department will implement organizational, policy and environmental-level changes to support residents who are motivated to increase physical activity and improve nutrition. The multifaceted approach to sustainable community change includes a community campaign, point-of-decision prompts, Safe Routes to School activities, garden-based nutrition interventions and worksite wellness programs. The program is partly funded by a grant through the Wisconsin Partnership Program's Community-Academic Partnership 2013 Fund.
